Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson's Former Publicist Fined Over Tax Trouble

Subscribe to Michael Jackson alerts

A former publicist for Michael Jackson has been sentenced to five years probation and fined $200,000 (£125,000) after pleading guilty to tax charges.
In June (11), Raymone Bain confessed to two counts of failure to file federal income tax returns and district income tax returns in Washington, D.C. from 2006 to 2008, when she was president of the Michael Jackson Co.
Bain, who faced up to 12 months behind bars for the crimes, claimed she had neglected her financial affairs because she had been overwhelmed by her responsibilities to the King of Pop and by the ailing health of her mother, who suffered from Alzheimer's.
She apologised to U.S. Magistrate Judge Alan Kay for the oversight and was spared jail. Instead, she was ordered to serve probation and pay back the $200,000 she owed in back taxes.
