OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A Nebraska man has been ordered to pay nearly $57,000 in restitution and spend a dozen consecutive weekends behind bars for filing fraudulent federal tax returns.

Federal prosecutors also say Joshua Miles last week was sentenced to five years of probation.

The prosecutors say that between February 2009 and August 2010, co-defendant Magalita Gelin and Miles filed bogus returns for several people who went to the couple’s home in Bellevue. The tax returns claimed refunds totaling more than $111,000.
