BECKLEY, W.Va. (AP) - A former assistant prosecutor in McDowell County has been sentenced to one-and-a-half years in prison for a federal tax crime committed while working in private practice.

Thirty-eight-year-old Jason Ray Grubb of Beaver was sentenced Wednesday in federal court in Beckley for failing to pay employment taxes.

Acting U.S. Attorney Carol Casto says Grubb admitted that while in private practice, he pocketed taxes that were withheld from an employee’s paycheck.

Grubb previously agreed to pay restitution for failing to pay more than $247,000 in federal taxes, overbilling West Virginia Public Defender Services more than $126,000, and failing to pay a financing company for more than $27,000 in advances.
