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.

    I heard some of Mitch's old friends had a celebration in his honor the other day. A competitive game if you will. So funny, I wonder if he was there to give out any of the prizes and pose with the winners? Its a shame he didn't win anything, he may have been able to use some of the stuff!

    From what I know there is a lot more than was disclosed in this case. He's had fake business ventures everywhere and money that was given to him multi times that was never on any books. They need to check with the scum that he hung with for the truth.

    Just heard about this had no idea any of this going on. In the same boat. I read Bill's comment about having to use secure us through his office and had to speak up. Have wanted to switch for awhile with all our properties but threatened if we did. I believe the comment posted earlier tonight about everyone being held accountable is true but overall glad we will be able to have a new company to service our systems so any ideas about good local security company please post in process of finding new.
