BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A Bakersfield man was sentenced to one year in prison for structuring cash deposits.
Miguel Antonio Ruiz Jaramillo, 67, was sentenced to one year in federal prison and was ordered to pay $91,527 in unpaid federal taxes, U.S. Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner announced.
Jaramillo was also ordered to perform 600 hours of community service.
According to court documents, from January 2010 through July 2012, Jaramillo cashed more than 50 checks in amounts of $10,000 or less at Valley Republic Bank located in Bakersfield, totaling more than $420,000.
Jaramillo had the checks cashed in this manner to prevent, or attempt to prevent, the bank from filing a Currency Transaction Report on those transactions, Wagner said.
Wagner said he did not want a CTR filed because for the years 2010 and 2011, he did not declare the structured cash transactions as income on his federal tax returns.
Jaramillo was ordered to self-surrender in 60 days.
