WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A Wichita attorney has been convicted of evading federal income taxes between 1998 and 2008 totaling more than $1 million.

According to a news release from U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom, 67-year-old Eldon Boisseau was convicted Tuesday. He had pleaded guilty to one count of tax evasion.

Grissom said Boisseau evaded taxes by putting his law firm in the name of another attorney.

According to the release, Boisseau also attempted to evade a trust fund recovery penalty in connection to two periods in 1999.

Boisseau faces a maximum penalty of five years in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000. His sentencing hearing is scheduled for Sept. 28.
