A tax fugitive in Arizona was sentenced to 46 months in prison.

After being found guilty by a jury of tax evasion and failure to file tax returns in December 2019, Kevin Scott Wynn, 59, of Scottsdale, Arizona, withdrew $1.5 million in cash from his business bank account in 13 separate transactions in the first several months of 2020 and then cut his ankle monitor and fled Arizona before a scheduled sentencing hearing.

He was apprehended by Mexican law enforcement authorities in Mexico City in August 2020 and extradited to the United States. Upon release from prison, Wynn will be placed on supervised release for three years. As a condition of supervision, he will be required to pay more than $700,000 in back taxes as restitution to the IRS.
