A Wichita man was sentenced Monday to two years in federal prison and ordered to pay more than $800,000 in a tax-evasion case involving unreported income from Internet domain names.

Dallen D. Harris, 39, pleaded guilty to one count of tax evasion. In his plea, he admitted he reported taxable income for 2010 of $164,157, when in fact his taxable income was more than $1 million, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom’s office said. Harris must pay $827,216 in restitution.

According to court records in a related civil forfeiture case in federal court, Harris obtained income from a variety of domain names, including celebritysextape.tv, adultkingdom.net, porntesters.com, hardcorefilms.tv, celebritynakedpic.com and sextape.com. The government in that case is seeking to forfeit houses, cars and bank accounts owned by Harris.
