A Defiance County man pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court on Friday to a bill of information charging him with five counts of tax evasion.
Michael W. Bakle is to be sentenced July 28 by Judge Jeffrey Helmick, who accepted his plea to the charges and found him guilty. Federal prosecutors said Bakle underreported his income by $224,111 between 2006 and 2010 and failed to pay the government $66,517 in taxes.
