SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A 57-year-old Sandy man has pleaded guilty to promoting a tax fraud scheme that cost the Internal Revenue Service millions.
Edward Woodger faced conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud charges for his role in a World Contractual Services swindle convincing clients to place their assets in tax-evading trusts.
Woodger faces up to five years in prison when he is sentenced in August. He was the ninth defendant to plead guilty in the scheme.
Prosecutors say the conspirators, who included four lawyers, defrauded the I-R-S of more than seven million dollars.
