Sullivan Man Placed on Probation

A Sullivan man had been placed on probation after entering a plea relating to felony counts of filing false Missouri income tax return and two felony counts of theft. A 14-month investigation between the Missouri Department of Revenue’s Criminal Tax Investigation Bureau and the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department found that Richard Miller had obtained more than $230,000 form deceit. The victim was duped into supplying operating capital from a nonexistent business. Miller was indicted by the Franklin County Grand Jury for theft and filing false individual income tax returns for the years of 2007, 2008, and 2009. Miller entered an Alford plea, which is not an admission of guilt, but that there is enough evidence for conviction. A seven year sentence was suspended and Miller was placed on five years probation. One of the conditions of the probation is that Miller pay restitution. A hearing is scheduled for December 18, 2012.

It came as a shock to a lot of people to find out that the contract for the Union license office, which has been operated by the Union Chamber of Commerce since the 1970's, was being turned over to a for-profit company based out of Jefferson City.

What happened? It's a classic case of two all-too-common phenomena in the world of government--unintended consequences and the revolving door.
