CLARKSBURG, W.Va. — A Morgantown business owner pleaded guilty Friday to federal income tax evasion.

Mitch Brozik, the owner of Secure US, admitted in a federal information that he filed fraudulent income tax returns from 2005-2009. Federal prosecutors said he lied about a bank account, personal accounts and personal tax returns.

Brozik could be sentenced to three years in prison. The issue of how much he may owe the IRS remains unresolved.

A guilty plea under a federal information generally means the defendant is cooperating with prosecutors. Sentencing will take place later this year.
