An Antioch man pleaded guilty to conspiring to file false tax returns that included fictitious W-2 forms, according to federal prosecutors. Khyber Law admitted to helping file several tax returns with the IRS starting in January 2011 that included false W-2 forms that inflated the individuals’ wages, prosecutors said. One tax return filed in Law’s name falsely reported he was employed at a staffing agency, prosecutors said.
Law also admitted filing other tax returns without ever showing them to the person who purportedly filed them, prosecutors said. Law was charged in a superceding indictment on Dec. 17, 2013, with conspiracy to file false claims, wire fraud, filing false claims and aggravated identity theft.
He pleaded guilty to conspiracy to file false claims and agreed to pay restitution. Two other people – Jessika Green, of Oakley, and Starkisha Benson, of Antioch – were also charged in the indictment. Law is scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 22.
