Ron Isley Heading to Prison But Wants a Pardon

July 29, 2007 11:01 AM | Ron Isley | Comments (0)

Ron Isley is heading to the big house for tax evasion in less than two weeks.  However, the long time R&B singer is seeking a presidential pardon to bypass jail.  Yea right.  George Bush giving a pardon. Unless you are one of George's cronies, you are going to prison.   Def Jam is trying to drum up support for an executive presidential pardon.

Last September Ron Isley was sentenced to 3 years in prison on five counts of federal income tax evasion. The IRS claims Isley who has assets in the millions had gone to great lengths to hide them in different bank accounts and by signing them over to relatives.  Isley who is 65 had pleaded "not guilty" on all account. Isley had unpaid taxes of $3.1 million between the years 1997 and 2002. According U.S. District Judge Dean Pregerson in Los Angeles called Isley a "serial tax avoider."

Isley's attorney argued that his client deserved probation due to his frail health, citing stroke he suffered two years ago and a recent battle with kidney cancer. Isley must report to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, where due to his health condition, he will most likely spend his time in a federal hospital.

Isley supporters are urging his fans to call, fax or email the White House immediately to help him stay out of prison.
