Timothy Dale Jackson, 49, of Pass Christian, Mississippi, an orthopedic physician, has been charged in a five count felony indictment alleging income tax evasion and obstruction of the due administration of the internal revenue laws, announced U.S. Attorney Gregory K. Davis and IRS Criminal Investigation Special Agent in Charge Gabriel L. Grchan. Jackson appeared on February 13, 2014 before Chief United States Magistrate Judge John M. Roper for his initial appearance and was released on a $700,000 bond. His arraignment is set for Tuesday, February 18, 2014 at 11:00 before Judge Roper. The indictment charges four counts of willful evasion of income tax, which each carry a maximum penalty of five years imprisonment and a fine of $250,000; he is also charged in an additional count of obstructing and impeding the due administration of the internal revenue laws, which carries a maximum penalty of three years imprisonment and a $250,000 fine. “Tax evasion is not a victimless crime," said Special Agent in Charge Gabriel L. Grchan of IRS Criminal Investigation. "We all pay when others swindle the government. The IRS and Department of Justice remain determined and vigilant in ferreting out such schemes to cheat the honest taxpayers." This case was investigated by IRS Criminal Investigation and the prosecution will be handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Ruth Morgan. The public is reminded that an indictment is a formal accusation of criminal conduct. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
