SF Businessman Gets 11 Months In Federal Prison
Jared Adrian

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The former owner of Jared Adrian Sod is going to federal prison for 11 months after admitting he didn’t pay taxes for at least five years.

Jared Adrian was sentenced Monday afternoon after pleading guilty in March.

Court documents say Adrian treated employees of his sod company as ‘contract laborers’ and didn’t deduct any federal withholdings from their checks.

Adrian also admits to not paying personal income tax from 2005 to 2009. All together Adrian owes more than $350,000 in taxes he failed to pay.

In court Monday, Adrian said he was following the advice of his late father, Jerry Adrian, who was also not paying his taxes.

In the original indictment filed against both Adrians in 2012, it says that Jerry Adrian had sent a letter to the president claiming that he had ‘voluntarily expatriated his citizenship.’ Documents say the Adrians were working with a ‘trust expert’ from Freeman, South Dakota, named Raymond Ehrman.

“I never thought it would get to this point nor should it have,” Jared Adrian said Monday in court.

Adrian has been ordered to pay the more than $350,000 he owes to the Internal Revenue Service. He said in court Monday that he plans to use his father’s inheritance to pay back his taxes and his dad’s taxes.

Jerry Adrian died in September.
