Sentencing Delayed in Tax Scheme Case

Sentencing for a Topeka man convicted in a tax scheme has been postponed until next year.

53-year old Michael Cooper will now be sentenced January 5th, 2009, in federal court. U.S. District Judge Carlos Murguia granted the motion.

He was the founder of the now-defunct "Renaissance, the Tax People," a tax advice company based in Topeka.

Cooper was convicted in February of 74 counts including mail fraud, wire fraud, money laundering and conspiracy. He faces a maximum sentence of more than 600 years in prison.
