NEW CITY, N.Y. (AP) - A defense lawyer says prosecutors are not seeking jail time for actor Stephen Baldwin, who’s accused of not paying his New York income taxes for three years.

There’s a court conference Monday in the case against Baldwin, the youngest of the four acting Baldwin brothers.

The Rockland County district attorney’s office said it is hoping a resolution can be reached Monday.

Baldwin, of Grandview, is accused of skipping New York taxes in 2008, 2009 and 2010. The district attorney said Baldwin owed more than $350,000 in tax and penalties.

His attorney, Russell Yankwitt, says he’s been advised by the Rockland County district attorney’s office that Baldwin can resolve the case without going behind bars.

Baldwin, who starred in 1995’s “The Usual Suspects,” has been free without bail.
