HONOLULU (AP) - The state Department of Taxation says island entertainer Andy Bumatai has pleaded guilty to five counts of willful failure to file his annual general excise tax returns for 2002 through 2006.
The department said Thursday that Bumatai was ordered to pay a $2,500 fine and to perform 300 hours of community service.
Officials say no restitution was ordered because the money had been paid before sentencing.
Bumatai was granted a deferral of his plea by District Judge Faye Koyanagi, meaning the entertainer's record will be wiped clean if he stays out of legal trouble.
The charges Bumatai pleaded guilty to are misdemeanor tax violations. Each carries a maximum possible fine of $25,000 and one year in prison.
