Description: Detroit, MI - President Of Michigan Trucking Business Pleads Guilty To Wire Fraud And Failure To File A Tax Return

The president of a Michigan truck hauling business pleaded guilty on July 12, 2018 in Detroit federal district court to wire fraud and to willfully failing to file a tax return.

According to information presented in open court and filed documents, Arshawn Kenard Hall, a resident of Farmington, Michigan, operated a truck hauling business called RAMA Enterprise, Inc. Hall was hired to transport plastic crates filled with automobile parts on behalf of an automobile company. After transporting the parts, Hall was expected to return the empty crates to a facility in Detroit. Instead, Hall diverted these plastic crates and sold them to a plastic recycling company for approximately $460,000. The actual value of the plastic crates that Hall stole was approximately $2,921,000.

In addition, Hall failed to file a 2012 federal income tax return on behalf of RAMA and failed to pay the taxes due. The tax loss associated with Hallís conduct is $142,069.

U.S. District Judge Terrence G. Berg scheduled sentencing for November 29, 2018. Hall faces a statutory maximum sentence of twenty years in prison for his wire fraud conviction, and one year in prison for failing to file a tax return. He also faces a period of supervised release, restitution, and monetary penalties.

Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Zuckerman thanked special agents of IRS Criminal Investigation, who conducted the investigation, and Tax Division Trial Attorneys Abigail Burger Chingos and Kenneth C. Vert, who are prosecuting the case, as well as Tax Division Paralegal Tiffany Thompson.
