DANBURY, Conn. – Although the owner of Augie’s in Danbury recently pleaded guilty to tax evasion, he still has the support of many loyal customers, according to newstimes.com.

Agostina Incorvaia, 47, of Danbury, pleaded guilty April 14 to federal tax evasion for failing to report $2.65 million in earnings from the eatery to the Internal Revenue Service.

The restaurateur admitted to an undercover IRS agent that he provided false numbers to his accountant, partially to help support his other business interests and properties.

Incorvaia faces up to five years in federal prison when he is sentenced July 7, and up to $100,000 in fines.

As part of his plea agreement, he agreed to pay $396,650 in restitution for tax evasion.
