Prominent broker and broadcaster faces jail time after tax-evasion plea.

Susan Patrick, co-owner of Patrick Communications, has pleaded guilty to filing false tax returns for the years 2012 to 2014. She is accused of doctoring the business returns to remove $10 million in gross receipts and altering personal returns to omit over $9.5 million in income for those years. She is also accused of backdating her signature on each tax return to make it seem like they had been timely filed. Patrick faces a potential three-year prison term, supervised release, and financial penalties. She has resigned from Patrick Communications and apologized to her family, friends, business associates, and the dedicated people at her radio stations.
