On Tuesday, Robin McPherson, a former businesswoman, and convicted felon pled guilty to failing to appear in court, tax evasion, and fraud. McPherson had faced up to 10 years in prison, but the plea agreement she made with the prosecution resulted in a lesser sentence of 5 years in prison.

McPherson was arrested in 2017 after she skipped a court appearance related to a previous conviction. She was charged with failing to appear, tax evasion, and fraud. According to court documents, McPherson had been using fraudulent means to avoid paying taxes. She was also accused of defrauding her business partners by using false documents and misrepresenting her income.

At the plea hearing, McPherson stated that she was “ashamed of her actions and had learned her lesson.” She said that she accepted responsibility for her actions and was willing to pay her debt to society.

McPherson’s attorney argued that her client was remorseful and had made significant efforts to turn her life around since her arrest. He cited her participation in a rehabilitation program and her commitment to getting a job as evidence of her efforts to improve.

The judge ultimately accepted McPherson’s plea and sentenced her to five years in prison. He also ordered her to pay $200,000 in restitution to her creditors.

McPherson’s case serves as a reminder of the consequences of tax evasion and fraud. Her sentence is a reminder of the importance of following the law and paying taxes.
