Vegas attorney pleads guilty to tax evasion

Posted: Updated:
LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A prominent Las Vegas bankruptcy attorney pleaded guilty to a charge of willful tax evasion as part of a plea deal.

According to the office of US Attorney Daniel G. Bogden, Randolph Goldberg is slated to be sentenced on May 23 in connection to falsifying tax returns related to his law firm. Bogden's office said Goldberg was originally charged on four counts of tax evasion and five counts of structuring financial transactions.

The other charges will be dismissed under the deal. Goldberg faces up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

As part of his plea agreement, Bogden's office said, Goldberg will voluntarily suspend his license to practice law in Nevada for at least two years and pay full restitution to the IRS for all tax losses resulting from his evasion.

It's alleged that Goldberg, well known for his television commercials, maintained two bank accounts - one primarily business oriented, the other primarily personal – and deducted from both but failed to report income to the IRS from the personal one.

An indictment further states that Goldberg, who runs Law Offices of Randolph H. Goldberg, systematically schemed to avoid taxes over a period of several years and that the activity involved thousands of dollars.
