GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) - A Rogue River lawyer was sentenced to five years on probation after pleading guilty to not paying more than $125,000 in federal income taxes.

The Grants Pass Daily Courier reports (https://is.gd/carml6 ) that Shane Reed reported $880,000 of income during 2006, 2007 and 2008, but didn’t pay taxes. Prosecutors say he used the money to buy expensive things, and make mortgage payments on a $1 million home.

According to court records, Reed has since paid all of his taxes for 2006 through 2008, but still owes the Internal Revenue Service about $150,000 in back taxes for 2012 and 2013.

As part of his probation, the 53-year-old Reed must pay all his taxes and perform community service.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Thomas Coffin presided over the case that concluded this week in Eugene.
