DALLAS (AP) – A federal judge in Idaho has sentenced a Texan to almost two years in prison and ordered him to repay nearly $1.5 million in a fraud case involving false tax claims.

Lawrence Sikutwa of Dallas in August pleaded guilty to conspiracy to file false claims for a refund. He was sentenced Tuesday in Pocatello, Idaho, to 21 months behind bars.

Investigators say Sikutwa operated a tax preparation business in Dallas and enlisted people in Idaho to solicit clients for him. Prosecutors say Sikutwa made false entries in order to boost the amount of refunds and returned just a portion of the money to clients.

The case involved tax returns filed since 2005.
