A federal grand jury has returned indictments against two Springfield men in separate cases.
In one case, businessman George Jaworksi… known as “Jerzy”… is facing four counts of filing false income tax returns. Prosecutors accuse Jaworski of dramatically underreporting income from his business, “The Granite Guy.” They say Jaworski failed to report more than $700,000 in income between 2005 and 2008. Each of the four counts carries a potential penalty of up to three years in prison.
In the other case, a Springfield man is accused of concealing assets in a bankruptcy case. The indictment alleges that Michael Carr did not disclose his ownership of several vehicles in his bankruptcy filing. It also claims that Carr told the bankruptcy court that his wife had $20,000 in a bank account… when in fact she had already withdrawn most of that money and given it to Carr. Nine of the ten counts against Carr carry prison terms of five years… while one count of falsifying records could bring a 20-year sentence.
