Georgia woman gets 2 years for tax evasion

A Rossville woman was sentenced to two years in prison Friday for failing to report and pay tax on income.

Jewayn Rayburn pleaded guilty in December to a federal indictment charging her with failing to report income tax on proceeds she had embezzled from Brown Construction, according to a U.S. Attorney’s Office news release.

Internal Revenue Service and FBI agents investigated Rayburn for two years, the release stated. Rayburn was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Chattanooga by Chief District Judge Curtis Collier.

U.S. Attorney Bill Killian said the cooperation and collaboration between his office and the IRS helps prosecute income tax crimes.

“We appreciate their effort as a member of the federal law enforcement team,” he said in the release.

This lady has been set up. If you really knew the people she worked for it would all make sense. It's a scary world we live in these days and people will use all their connections to ruin others lives because of their greed. It could happen to any of us! Very, very scary. It will all come out on the true judgement day. God bless her.
