That DUI Wasn’t a Good Omen

A week ago I wrote about former Louisiana State Senator Charles Jones. Just before his retrial on tax evasion, he was cited for driving while under the influence. That apparently wasn’t a good omen for Mr. Jones.

His trial was last week, and the jury began deliberating on Monday. After three hours, they found him guilty of all three counts of tax evasion. The IRS and Department of Justice showed, to the satisfaction of the jury, that Mr. Jones evaded taxes on about $750,000 of legal fees (around $190,000 of taxes). Mr. Jones will be sentenced in December.
