A Federal Judge sentenced a disbarred attorney from Henderson County to three years in prison on Wednesday.

According to our news coverage partners at the Hendersonville Times-News, U.S. District Court Judge Martin Reidlinger sentenced Sam Neill to three years in prison for federal tax fraud and ordered him to pay $492,665 in restitution for back taxes and a year of supervised release at the end of the sentence. The newspaper reports that Neill's sentence will run consecutively with any time ordered during his sentencing on state charges of embezzlement.

Last April, Neill pled guilty to one count of federal tax fraud as a result of a plea deal. Last September, he pled guilty to five state counts of felony embezzlement in Superior Court.
