Newswire is reporting the following regarding Larkens sentencing today.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 22 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Notorious tax protestor Larken Rose of Hollywood, Pa., was sentenced in federal district court to 15 months imprisonment for failing to file tax returns for the years 1998 - 2002, the Justice Department and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced today. In compliance with Judge Michael M. Baylson's admonition following Rose's conviction in August, Rose submitted delinquent tax returns for the years 1997 - 2004 and paid a substantial deposit to the IRS toward his outstanding tax liability. The court sentenced Rose to one year of supervised release following his prison term and ordered Rose to pay a fine of $10,000 and all taxes, interest, and penalties he owes to the IRS.

We also have a report from an courtroom observer confirming same. I can add that Larken will be able to spend Thanksgiving with his family after which he will begin serving his sentence.

We hope to report more on this once the courtroom notes are transcribed sometime after the holiday.
