Wahoo lawyer convicted of filing false tax return suspended
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The Nebraska Supreme Court has suspended for three years the law license of a Wahoo lawyer who was convicted of filing a false federal tax return.
The state’s high court said Friday that 63-year-old Kent Trembly admitted the felony conviction and noted that a referee recommended Trembly be suspended for 18 months. But the high court said that after its review of the case, it concluded a three-year suspension was proper.
Court records show Trembly didn’t report any of the more than $1.1 million in gross receipts from his legal work or work as a veterinarian or investment broker for the 2006 and 2007 tax years. In late 2016, Trembly was sentenced to two years’ probation and ordered to pay more than $110,000 in restitution.
