On Monday I published an article about Jerry Koosman evading his taxes and how he was going to be sentenced for the crime.
Well, here’s an update.
Koosman has been sentenced to six months in jail for failing to pay taxes between 2002 and 2004. He will also have one year of supervised probation.
Before being sentenced, Koosman, 66, a two-time All-Star left-hander who lives on income from Social Security and occasional appearance fees, apologized.
"Like most people in their sixties, I've made some bad decisions in my life. I shouldn't have listened to those people about the tax returns, but I did, and I take full responsibility," he said in court.
He will also have to work out his debt with the United Stated tax authority.
