The owner of a trucking company in Hudson, NH, has pleaded guilty to
charges of conspiring to defraud the Internal Revenue Service, the Department
of Transportation and his workers compensation insurance carriers.
The Associated Press reported Robert Stalker, the owner of Robert’s Dismantling and Recycling Corp.,
admitted that he paid his workers in cash, under the table, for their overtime
and never reported it to the IRS.
In addition, Stalker admitted businesses that owed his company paid him
in checks made out to false names. He cashed more than $1.3 million worth of
those checks at a Massachusetts check-cashing company and kept the cash off of
his company’s books.
The U.S. Attorney’s office charged that Stalker also wrote more than
$750,000 in checks from his company bank account to both real and fictitious
companies for expenses his company never incurred.
Stalker is scheduled for sentencing March 16, 2006.
