Former Library Director Sentenced in Federal Tax Case
November 8, 2013 — The United States Attorney’s Office in Hammond says a former East Chicago Public Library director has his sentence today for a guilty plea to federal criminal charges.
U.S. Attorney David Capp’s Office says 39-year-old Manuel Montalvo of East Chicago has two years of probation with four months of home detention after pleading guilty to filing a false tax return.
Capp’s Office says Montalvo also has a $1,000 fine for filing the false tax documents while employed as Director of the East Chicago Public Library.
According to documents in this case, Montalvo admitted he gave false information about income tax deductions, including that he had $23,382 in business expenses and $17,063 in medical expenses when both figures were made up.
Capp’s Office says the case was the result of an investigation by the Internal Revenue Service and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
