Former San Leandro Man Charged With Tax Fraud

William Henry Norgren faces a theoretical maximum of 123 years in prison and $10.25 million fine for allegedly underreporting $667,000 in federal taxes.


Former San Leandro resident William Henry Norgren has been charged with 41 counts of federal tax fraud according to the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of California.

Norgen, who is now said to reside in the Philippines, faces a maximum of three years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each count of alleged fraud.

That works out to a theoretical maximum sentence of 123 years behind bars and $10.25 million in fines.

An indictment approved last week by a federal grand jury in Oakland charges that, between 2006 and 2009, Norgren reported false amounts on quarterly tax returns prepared for six employers, which resulted in the underpayment of $667,000 in taxes.

This story will be updated if additional details become available.

Hopefully the cops and investigators will seize all of his property and assets still here or shielded by his relatives. Much as we do with terrorists. He is just as bad.
