Roy and Jodi Hoskins, owners of Companions went to prison for tax evasion.
The link below is about Jodi's appeal of the sentencing, Its lengthy, but the paragraph I'm referring to is the 8th one down, where it states:
"The district court pointed to the prostitution activities of Companions' escorts and applied a two-level enhancement because it found Hoskins “failed to report or to correctly identify the source of income exceeding $10,000 in any year from criminal activity.” USSG § 2T 1.1(b)(1)."
I didn't know you had to report income from criminal activity???? I would think it would be normal not to report it, and the judges should understand that!!!!
In Paragraph 6 it states:
"After an investigation, the government discovered that Companions received at least $1,053,552 in credit-card payments alone in 2002. Further, because Companions escorts explained that the company received 50–70% of its payments in cash, the government projected the cash intake for 2002 was equal to the credit-card receipts. Thus, the government estimated that Companions' 2002 gross receipts were $2,107,104—more than $1.2 million in excess of the income claimed by the Hoskinses. "
