A Pseudo New Nominee for Tax Offender of the Year

Well, he probably can’t win my coveted award of Tax Offender of the Year as the alleged crimes have nothing to do with tax. However, the alleged perpetrator is a tax attorney, so there is at least some relation to tax. Robert Howell of Cary, North Carolina is accused of attempted murder, kidnapping, and first degree burglary in Isle of Palms, South Carolina. Mr. Howell is alleged to have followed his ex-girlfriend to South Carolina where he is alleged to have committed the crimes. He’s also accused of assaulting and threatening her the day before this incident in her home in Cary, North Carolina.

While the charges are pending he’s been suspended from the North Carolina Bar.

Meanwhile, Mr. Howell is locked in a custody battle with his estranged wife. And Cary police plan on serving Mr. Howell with additional charges.
