LAS VEGAS (AP) — A federal jury in Las Vegas has found a former Internal Revenue Service employee of evading taxes for more than 20 years and obstructing tax agents who tried to collect.

Prosecutors said Tuesday that 71-year-old Craig P. Orrock, of Sandy, Utah, could face up to 13 years in federal prison for his conviction on three felony charges.

Sentencing is scheduled Aug. 26 in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas.

Orrock and a Las Vegas attorney involved in his case did not immediately respond to messages.

Prosecutors identified Orrock as a former attorney.

They say he evaded paying more than $500,000 in federal income taxes from 1993 through 2015, and prevented the IRS from collecting by using bank accounts, trusts and property sales to hide his income and assets.
