BISMARCK (AP) — Sentencing has been delayed until Sept. 21 for a former Dickinson executive accused of tax fraud.
Micheal Fisher pleaded guilty in May to several felonies, and was initially to be sentenced last week.
Fisher, a former vice president and director of Fisher Sand & Gravel Co. Inc., worked for the Dickinson company until July 2008. He was accused of using corporate funds to pay personal expenses.
Court records say the business would record the purchases and payments as business expenses, and Fisher did not report the money as income on his personal income taxes. The business then would have less profits to pay taxes on, and Fisher would have less taxable income.
Prosecutors said the case involved about $630,000 in unpaid taxes.
