WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ The former owners of a Wichita home health care company have pleaded guilty to filing a false tax return.

The U.S. Attorney's office says that 68-year-old Gerard Lessard and his 73-year-old wife, Betty Lessard, 73, entered the pleas Monday in federal court.

The couple owned a company called ProActive Health Care Inc. They admitted failing to report nearly $859,000 of income on their federal tax return for 2004.

Sentencing is set for Sept. 12. The plea agreement calls for the government to recommend home or community confinement followed by supervised released.

The Lessards also agreed to be held liable for more than $690,000 in restitution.
