The hunt for Bob October

From the Star Tribune:

The former executive of a Maple Grove computer company was sentenced Wednesday to three years and seven months in prison for tax evasion and aiding and abetting the tax evasion of fugitive millionaire tax protester Robert Beale…. Beale, 62, who lived in North Oaks, did not turn up for trial and remains at large.

It’s so hard to imagine why, when you consider that the prosecution is on the public record demanding that the judge sentence his associate for things the guy was neither charged with nor convicted for. Still, I find it amusing how tax-related sentencings always happen to be delayed for one reason or another, just long enough to produce the required scary news reports around April 15th.

So it looks like Dad would be in for more time than anyone at Enron got… long may he roam free.
