SIOUX FALLS, SD -
A Salem man found guilty of tax-related crimes has been convicted of failing to appear for sentencing on the previous federal convictions.
The U.S. Attorney's office said 54-year-old Thomas R. Kelley could face another 10 years in prison on top of a pending sentence in the tax case. He was convicted in May 2010 on 22 counts that included filing a false income tax return, impeding the Internal Revenue Service and tax evasion.
The government said Kelley failed to appear at his sentencing last August. He was apprehended in Wood Lake, Minn., on December 22. Kelley was ordered into custody pending sentencing June 27.
