A federal grand jury returned an indictment Thursday charging Brady James, 30, of Burlington, Ky., with one count of destruction of records with intent to impede proper administration of a matter within an agency of the United States.
According to the indictment, in April of this year, James destroyed at least 8001041 federal income tax return forms that had been submitted to the IRS. These forms are used for individuals earning income from estates and trusts. James worked as a tax examining technician.
A date for James to appear in federal court has not yet been set. If convicted he faces a minimum of probation and a maximum of 20 years in prison. However, any sentence following a conviction would come after the court considers the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and the federal statutes.
