(SD)-Ex-Car Dealer Gets 9-1/2 Years For Bank Fraud And Tax Evasion
RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - The manager of a defunct Rapid City auto dealership has been sentenced to 9 1/2 years in federal prison for bank fraud and tax evasion. 44-year-old Brent Bednarz must also repay a total of $1.5 million dollars to the IRS and his uncle.
Authorities say Bednarz embezzled from the Rapid Motors dealership started by his uncle, and also ran a kickback scheme with another local car dealer.
Bednarz - who has previous convictions for theft, burglary and perjury - pleaded guilty in a deal in which prosecutors dismissed dozens of other charges.
