Woman receives five years for tax conspiracy

POSTED: April 15, 2009 11:49 p.m.

A Gainesville woman who used an alias and more than 30 fake business names to hide a man’s taxable assets from the IRS was sentenced to more than five years in federal prison Wednesday.

Jacqueline Ann Demer, 50, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Atlanta to five years, three months in prison on tax conspiracy charges, according to Patrick Crosby, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Demer helped 65-year-old Jerry Robert Lahr of Hurst, Texas, hide from the IRS some $2.6 million he made between 1996 and 2003, according to the government. Demer served as a trustee for several shell entities set up to hide Lahr’s assets, which included real property and cars, Crosby said.

Lahr was sentenced to three years, one month in prison.
