Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler announced today that John T. Chalk, Jr., 47, of Durness Court in Perry Hall, Maryland, pled guilty in the Circuit Court for Baltimore County to a tax fraud scheme, stealing $78,086 from the State government. The Honorable Susan M. Souder ordered a pre-sentence investigation and set sentencing for March 1, 2007.

The investigation disclosed that Chalk received $78,086 in fraudulently obtained tax refunds over the years 2002 to 2005. Chalk admitted to using false names and false social security numbers to obtain nine of the twelve fraudulent refunds.

Chalk’s conviction follows an investigation by the Criminal Investigations Division of the Office of the Attorney General. Attorney General Gansler thanked Assistant Attorneys General Paul Budlow, Emmett Davitt, and Benjamin Harris for their work on this case.
