Springfield Man Pleads Guilty to Federal Tax Evasion Charges
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — A former Springfield man who fled Missouri for Mexico nearly seven years ago has pleaded guilty to federal tax evasion charges. Fifty-seven-year-old Scott Lucas pleaded guilty Monday to failing to file tax returns from 2002 through 2005 when he worked in Branson. Court documents show Lucas fled to Mexico when he learned he was under investigation. He was arrested in Denver earlier this year.
