ANCHORAGE- An inmate already serving a 15-year sentence in federal prison has had nine years tacked on.
The U.S. attorney's office says 49-year-old John Richard Koesterman was sentenced Friday in U.S. District Court in Anchorage for filing false tax returns.
He also was ordered to forfeit nearly $20,000 seized by law enforcement and pay restitution of more than $95,000.
Authorities in a release say he directed others in conspiracy to submit 55 false tax returns.
