Man sentenced, ordered to pay restitution for defrauding IRS

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) – A man who defrauded the IRS and targeted people on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation has been sentenced to 6 1/2 years in prison.

The Rapid City Journal reports Manaen Dean Matthews was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty to wire fraud, conspiracy to defraud the government and making a false claim, court records show.

He also was ordered to pay $523,250 in restitution.

Authorities say Matthews filed 1,201 fraudulent federal income tax returns for more than $3.6 million in false claims in South Dakota and other states between 2015 to 2018.
