Baton Rouge man pleads guilty to taking over $100,000 in fraudulent tax returns

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A Baton Rouge man pleaded guilty to charges of taking stolen government funds on Thursday.

U.S. Attorney Walt Green says 33-year-old Cameron Butler is the latest in a series of convictions related to the theft and use of over 400 social security numbers to file fraudulent tax returns. Butler pleaded guilty to taking $107,000 in fraudulent tax returns.

Butler's wife, Mona Hill, was convicted with the same tax fraud scheme in 2013. She was sentenced to over five years in prison and ordered to repay almost $500,000 in restitution.

Butler's sentencing is pending.
