Allentown attorney pleads guilty to tax offense

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - A licensed attorney pleaded guilty Thursday to willfully failing to collect, account for and pay over to the U.S. taxes owned by his Allentown law firm. 

The U.S. Attorney says Douglas M. Marinos, 56, failed to pay money he withheld from the paychecks of his firm's employees to the IRS, for the purpose of paying federal payroll taxes. 

Marinos could face up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine, in addition to paying around $285,000 in restitution to the IRS. 

Marinos will be sentenced at a later date.
