Criminal Defense Attorney Sentenced for Tax Evasion (he should have hired SELIG & Associates)




On April 19, 2017, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Michael Thiel, of Baton Rouge, was sentenced to 30 months in prison for tax evasion, two years of supervised release and ordered to pay $998,352 in restitution to the IRS. Thiel operated a criminal defense practice in Hammond and, from 2003 through 2013, did not file income or employment tax returns and didn’t pay taxes he owed. Thiel concealed his income and assets creating three trust and nominees. Thiel used these three trusts to evade the payment of federal income and employment taxes. In January 2007, Thiel used nominees to purchase his primary residence for $435,000 and entered into a phony lease agreement with the nominees to conceal his ownership of the property and shield it from IRS collection efforts. Between January 2007 and January 2014, Thiel deposited $416,283 into the nominee account that was used to secure and pay the mortgage on the property.
