Pflueger sentenced for tax evasion

HONOLULU – A Hawaii car dealer who agreed to testify about his father in a manslaughter case has been sentenced to 15 months in prison for tax evasion.

Alan Pflueger was sentenced Friday in federal court in Honolulu.

Pflueger pleaded guilty last year to filing a tax return with unreported income in 2005.

Pflueger is the son of James Pflueger, who took a plea deal earlier this year in a case involving the deaths of seven people on his property when a dam broke in 2006. James Pflueger pleaded no contest to reckless endangering charges in exchange for prosecutors dropping seven manslaughter counts.
