WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A 39-year-old Wichita man has been sentenced to two years in prison for evading taxes on income linked to pornographic websites.
The U.S. Attorney's office says Dallen Harris must also pay $827,000 in restitution under the sentence he received Monday in U.S. District Court.
Harris pleaded guilty earlier to one count of tax evasion, admitting he earned more than $1 million in 2010 but reported income of just $164,000. Prosecutors dropped three other counts of tax evasion in return for the plea.
In a related civil case, the government describes Harris as a webmaster who owned the domain names of various pornography sites. Prosecutors are seeking forfeiture of houses, vehicles and bank accounts in that case.
