Bristol Mechanic Gets Prison For Elderly Scam, Tax Crimes

KELO Gavel

A Bristol mechanic who scammed an 83-year-old man, filed fraudulent sales tax returns and underreported his income has been sentenced to serve eight years in prison.
The attorney general’s office says 60-year-old Gary Podzimek did unauthorized and unnecessary mechanical work on the elderly man’s pickup truck, and filed false or fraudulent business tax returns.
A jury in April convicted him of grand theft by deception, failing to pay taxes and other charges. He was sentenced Wednesday. He also must surrender his sales tax license and will not be eligible to reapply for it for 10 years following his release from prison.
He was ordered to make restitution of $39,800 to the victim’s family.
