AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine’s attorney general says a Kennebunk commercial fisherman with a record of failing to pay his income taxes that dates back decades will spend two years in prison.

Attorney General Janet Mills says 54-year-old Brian Morse was sentenced Thursday for failing to file and pay taxes for 2006-2008 and 2010. He has been in custody since pleading guilty in April.

Mills says this is Morse’s third conviction for tax fraud, with others for failure to pay taxes dating back to the 1980s.

She said all Mainers must pay their fair share of taxes.

Morse was also ordered to pay more than $15,000 in back taxes owed the state.
