CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - A bookkeeper at an Atlantic City Rolling chair company who lied to federal agents during an investigation into unreported cash taken from the business won’t have to serve a prison term.

Federal prosecutors say 67-year-old city resident Abdus Mian was sentenced Monday to a year of probation.

He had pleaded guilty in April 2015 to making materially false statements to federal agents.

Mian admitted keeping a second set of books that tracked the cash that three of the firm’s owners were removing from the business and not reporting to the IRS.

Mian was questioned about his role as bookkeeper in a June 2011 interview. He falsely stated that he only maintained one set of books, never prepared a second set and didn’t know the owners were taking cash.
