A Louisburg man has been sentenced to a year of house arrest and five years of probation for not paying income taxes on money he made as a consultant in Iraq, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said Tuesday.
The sentencing occurred Monday after Gregory S. Light, 43, pleaded guilty to one count of tax evasion, the office said in an e-mail news release. Light had been a lieutenant colonel in the Kansas Army National Guard and deployed to Iraq. After his deployment, he returned to Iraq to work as a subcontractor with his company, Lighthouse Consulting.
He failed to report $313,781 in income and failed to pay $81,886 in income taxes, the office said.
