SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- A Salina man has been sentenced to three years of probation for filing false tax returns on his income from a strip club he owned.
The U.S. Attorney's Office says 49-year-old Kirk Roberts must also pay taxes totaling $153,000 under the sentence he received Monday in federal court.
Roberts pleaded guilty in January to failing to report nearly $538,000 in cash receipts at his Wild Wild West club from 2006 through 2008.
Investigators said the club charged customers a nightly cover charge. It also charged nightly cash fees from dancers for performing onstage or using private rooms.
Roberts admitted depositing the cash into a personal account rather than putting into the club's bank account.
