OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A northeast Nebraska man who already has paid nearly $202,000 in restitution has been given six months of home confinement for cheating on his federal income taxes.

The Norfolk Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1gQa7nq ) that 68-year-old Robert Morris, of Laurel, also was sentenced on Friday to a day in custody and 100 hours of community and fined $40,000.

Prosecutors say that from 2007 through 2012, Morris underreported a total of more than $1 million in income on his federal tax returns, resulting in avoidance of federal income taxes totaling nearly $202,000.

U.S. District Judge John Gerrard cited Morris’ poor health for not sending him to prison.
