A man from Lawrence who won money gambling may lose three years of his life in prison for filing a false tax return, federal prosecutors say.

Bradley Stoneking, 30, pleaded guilty to making false statements in his income tax return, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said in a prepared statement.

He falsely claimed federal tax withholding on gambling winnings in the amount of about $330,000.

He could face a fine up to $250,000 plus the a maximum penalty of three years, prosecutors said in a prepared statement.

He is scheduled for sentencing Sept. 8, the statement said.
