Crete Man Gets 6 Months in Tax Withholding Case

ne-supreme-court-gavel(AP) — A 69-year-old Nebraska businessman has been given six months in prison for not paying to the government money he’d withheld for federal taxes.

John Clabaugh Jr. was sentenced on Monday and ordered to pay more than $135,000 in restitution.

Federal prosecutors say Clabaugh, of Lincoln, ran an insurance agency out of Crete. Prosecutors say Clabaugh withheld money from his and his employees’ salaries for taxes but stopped paying it to the IRS in 2001.
