BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Bismarck man has been sentenced to time served, three years of supervised release and restitution for defrauding the Internal Revenue Service.

Authorities say 39-year-old Solomon Lindsay created a scheme in which he filed tax returns for others with inflated incomes and false credits, resulting in bogus refunds. He then skimmed much of the refunds for himself.

U.S. Attorney Chris Meyers says the IRS paid out fraudulent refunds totaling nearly $141,000. Lindsay must repay the money.
