George Albright, a 57 year old Nashville native, was sentenced to two years in prison for filing false income tax returns.
Not only did Albright receive $9,600 dollars by his fraudulent actions, but did so while working for the IRS. Albright worked for the IRS for 17 years, causing the federal judge assigned to his case to call his actions “an egregious abuse of public trust.”
Albright is ordered to serve two years in prison, and one year of supervised probation after he serves his sentence. In addition, he must repay the taxpayer money stolen from government.
