BOSTON -- A Dracut woman involved in tax evasion scheme for a former Chelmsford paving company was sentenced Thursday to six months of home confinement and six months probation.
Judith Kelleher, 53, incorporated Mass. Paving in 1993 with William Belleville, a Groton resident. From then until 2006, the two withheld federal income taxes from their employees' weekly pay but failed to pay that money to the IRS, according to the office of U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz.
Belleville, 58, was sentenced last week to 18 months in prison and made to repay $460,000, the amount of taxes that he withheld. He will also have one year of supervised release following his jail sentence.
The restitution, or repayment, issue is still pending with Kelleher, according to the IRS Boston office.
