Longmeadow Man Gets Probation For Evading Taxes

A Longmeadow man is being sentenced to one year of federal probation.

According to the Justice Department, Satish Kumar of Longmeadow pleaded guilty to conspiracy, wire fraud, money-laundering and failing to register a money-transmitting business.

Prosecutors said Kumar evaded Connecticut state tobacco taxes when he purchased a wholesale warehouse business in Berlin.

Kumar according to the US Attorney's office evaded over 16-million dollars in taxes.

Federal agents executed a search warrant at the warehouse south of Hartford and a dozen other locations in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Pennsylvania in 2012.

The DOJ says Kumar was also charged with an illegal check-cashing case involving a liquor store he owned in Springfield.
