Owners of Bogan's Deep Sea Fishing Center Sentenced for Tax Evasion

William H. Bogan Sr. to spend six months in prison

The owners of Bogan's Deep Sea Fishing Center in Brielle were sentenced today after pleading guilty to income tax evasion in March.

William H. Bogan Sr., 77 was sentenced to six months in prison and six months home confinement with electronic monitoring. His daughter, Sharon Bogan, 47 was sentenced to two years probation.

The Bogans, owners of several charter fishing boats and river cruising boats located in Brielle and Point Pleasant Beach, failed to report large portions of income earned for five years, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

From 2004 through 2009, the Bogans kept for their personal use a large portion of the business receipts received by their charter fishing and river cruising boats – primarily payments in the form of cash and checks made out to “Captain Bogan” – and failed to report these receipts on their respective personal income tax returns, according to the U.S. Attorney's office.

William Bogan also had admitted that he maintained a “second set of books,” which was recovered by special agents of the IRS during a search of his personal residence and which he used to record the amount of income he received but did not report to the IRS, the U.S. Attorney's Office said.

In addition to the prison term, William Bogan was sentenced to two years of supervised release and ordered to pay a $5,000 fine.

True, but like you said, everyone who receives cash is doing it. Some big businesses, some small businesses, Including teen baby sitters. Are we ready to start putting them in jail too.

True.. It's the "get over" culture that is killing us. It is happening everywhere, all types of business, some larger, some smaller, towns are getting over, our elected officials lie, they give unnecessary jobs out to their friends, that is cheating the tax payers, it does not matter if you vote them out, you get in new ones who do the same thing. It truly is a "get over" culture. It is happening on different levels, doling out jobs is the same as money being taken and abused.
