United States Attorney Ronald C. Gathe, Jr. announced that a federal grand jury has returned a three-count indictment charging Lakeisha Grayer, age 40, of Denham Springs, Louisiana, with making and subscribing false tax returns.

The indictment alleges that, on multiple occasions from 2016 to 2018, Grayer made and filed false tax returns for her business by knowingly underreporting the business’s gross receipts for tax years 2015, 2016, and 2017.

This matter is being investigated by the Internal Revenue Service and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Harley Ferguson.
