Strip Club Owner Pleads Guilty to Tax Evasion

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) The owner of a Salina strip club faces possible prison time after admitting he underpaid his federal income taxes by more than $153,000.

The U.S. Attorney’s office says Kirk Roberts, 49, pleaded guilty Friday in U.S. District Court to three counts of filing false income tax returns.

Prosecutors said Roberts failed to report $538,000 in cash receipts from customers and dancers at his Wild Wild West club from 2006 through 2008.

Roberts could be sentenced to three years in prison on each of the three counts. The sentencing is scheduled for April 22.
