Holly Damiani was married to real estate developer Jeffrey Wirth. They were divorced and then the roof fell in: Mr. Wirth, Ms. Damiani and their accountant, Michale Murry, are accused of various tax evasion charges. Ms. Damiani pleaded guilty in a plea bargain on Friday. According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune:
[She] admitted that from “at least” 2003 through October 2006, she conspired with Wirth and their tax return preparer Michael James Murry to defraud the Internal Revenue Service by failing to report and pay their true income and tax obligations.
I’d say Mr. Wirth’s defense just became a lot more difficult: Ms. Damiani is working with the US Department of Justice. The trial of Mr. Wirth and Mr. Murry is scheduled for May 29th.
