MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee County court commissioner will spend five days in jail and at least a year on probation for filing false state income tax returns.
49-year-old Geneva McKinley pleaded no contest Thursday to two reduced misdemeanor charges of knowingly submitting false tax documents. She was originally charged with two felony tax fraud counts.
McKinley was convicted of not reporting almost $68,000 in private legal fees and rental income in 2005 and ‘06.
Allegations that she failed to report another $60,000 in rental income were dropped.
McKinley has been a court commissioner in Milwaukee since 2007. She was placed on 18 months on probation – but she can reduce that by six months if she completes a number of counseling sessions.
