U.S. District Judge Robert W. Gettleman sentenced Melvin Reynolds, 66, last week to six months in federal prison for failing to file federal income tax returns for calendar years 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012. Reynolds, a former member of the U.S. House of Representatives, will receive two months of credit for time served.

The trial evidence showed that Reynolds received gross income in excess of the minimum amount required to file a tax return. As a result, he was required by law to file a federal income tax return, but he willfully failed to do so.
