A federal Judge sentenced Jeffrey Phillips, 41, to three and a half years and prison ordered him to pay $5.8 million in restitution for not paying payroll taxes.

Phillips, owned and managed nursing homes, provided nursing home staff, and provided in-home care services and failed to pay $4.7 million in payroll taxes he did not tender to the Internal Revenue Service

He pleaded guilty previously to one count of failure to pay employment taxes from 2001 to 2005.
