Ohio fraud case linked back to Miami Heat basketball team

If you're charged with a tax crime, you've probably wondered if you have any options. You do; you may be able to defend against the criminal tax investigation and make sure you are treated fairly during this trying time in your life. In Ohio, one recent tax fraud case has come to light, and now Miami Heat, the popular basketball team, has also been pulled into the case. According to the Dec. 31 news release, an Ohioan has been accused of operating multimillion-dollar fraud campaigns that have cheated people like the basketball players of Miami Heat.

According to the story, it's expected that the man will plead guilty when he is indicted; he will allegedly accept guilt for wire fraud, tax evasion charges, and money laundering. The man faces 135 counts of charges, and it's alleged that he also defrauded a businessman in Washing D.C. out of $10 million between the years 2008 and 2010.

One witness has claimed that Mike Miller, a player for Miami Heat, may have been defrauded by the man. According to documents filed with the federal court in Columbus, Ohio, the man has agreed to plead guilty to 30 of the charges against him and to forfeit $10 million, but no date has been set for the man to be seen by a judge.

If you've been accused of committing a tax crime like evading your taxes or participating in tax fraud, you may want to look into your legal options for a defense. With some help, you may be able to defend yourself and protect your lifestyle and reputation from harm.
