Man convicted of tax fraud -, 12 Feb 2005 [cached]
John Havey told a federal jury he is a fighter and vowed to persuade jurors that the income tax fraud charges against him are a big mistake.
He represented himself during the trial and gave long-winded arguments to the jury in his defense.
The jury didn't buy it.On Friday, Havey was convicted of three counts of income tax fraud for failing to report $548,719 in income from 1993 through 1995.He sat grim-faced as the jury foreman announced the verdict.
His tax returns, filed late in 1997, state that he owed $91,000 in income taxes for those years.Evidence compiled by the IRS' Criminal Investigation Division showed he owes $298,000.
Havey, 59, of Aliquippa, portrayed himself to the jury as a "small town" lawyer who built up a successful practice and was a victim of the IRS.He said he came out of the steel mills of the area -- the descendant of immigrants from Beirut and Czechoslovakia -- to put himself through law school.
He said he had too much to lose to commit income tax fraud.
"I would not jeopardize my law practice," he told the jury on Thursday, beseeching them to find him not guilty."I'm a lawyer.That's all I've ever done.I'm not an entrepreneur.My intent was to keep my office open, keep a house over my family's head and pay my bills on time."

He said that when he finally got around to filing his returns, he couldn't get all of his brokerage account activity ready in time to meet an IRS deadline.He said he filed the returns anyway because the IRS was threatening to padlock his law office if he didn't.
Havey argued that he always planned to file amended returns, but the IRS wouldn't let him because it became a criminal matter.He blamed his accountant for failing to do a good job.
During cross-examination, Assistant U.S. Attorney James Wilson repeatedly pointed out that Havey had opportunities to file amended return, but never did so.
