Former Columbia City Councilman E.W. Cromartie will be sentenced to federal prison on Oct. 15, the U.S. Attorneys office said.
Cromartie pleaded guilty in April to tax evasion and two counts of structuring bank deposits to avoid federal reporting requirements. He agreed to serve 12 months plus one day in prison and pay $58,075 in back taxes.
However, his sentence hinged on whether or not he cooperated with federal investigators as they looked into other criminal activity. Part of the deal required Cromartie to submit to a polygraph exam.
