Completing the Circle

Last year I reported on Circle Industries, the Alpharetta, Georgia based international construction company. The father and son owners conspired with their bookkeeper to deduct personal expenses on their business return, including things like visits to Atlanta’s Gold Club, an adult entertainment facility.

Well, this past week the owners found out their fate. Gerald Marchelletta Sr. received 27 months at ClubFed, his son Gerald Marchelletta Jr. received 36 months, and their bookkeeper, Theresa Kottwitz, got 24 months. Additionally, the firm, which has already made “substantial restitution” according to this news report must fully pay back the IRS. Finally, each of the Marchallettas must pay a $50,000 fine.
