Financial experts charged with tax crimes

A Moses Lake couple who runs an financial consulting and insurance brokerage firm have been charged with failing to pay taxes.

J. Scott Vrieling and his wife, Patrica Dionn Vrieling, are each charged with four misdemeanors for allegedly failing to pay taxes from 2004 through 2007.

The charges carry no more than a year in prison, a $100,000 fine and a year of probation.

The Vrielings own Vrieling Financial in Moses Lake. The firm opened in 1949 and provides brokerage and consulting services to businesses and executives.

A grand jury indicted them Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Spokane.
