This Week in Crime: Low-Rent Peeping Tom Arrest Balanced Out By High-Class White Collar Conviction

What is it with Freetown Court? For the second time in less than a month, a Reston man was arrested for peeping after lurking about in the dark, as Reston criminals seem to be wont to do.

A man was arrested for peeping into a 21-year-old woman’s window on Sunday, January 17. The victim was inside her home in the 2100 block of Freetown Court around 1:30 a.m. when she noticed a man peering through her blinds. She picked up a phone to call police and the suspect fled. [The suspect] was transported to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center and charged with peeping and drunk in public.
Lest we start worrying about the tawdry nature of many Reston crimes, here's some "good" news: a good 'ole white-collar conviction, much like you'd see in McLean or "Great" Falls!
[The suspect] pleaded guilty today to willful failure to file a tax return, the Justice Department and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Theresa C. Buchanan in Alexandria, Va.

According to court documents and statements made at the change of plea hearing, he owns and operates a consulting business that helps private businesses secure contracts with the government.  Although he received $328,440 in income during 2004 as a result of services he rendered through Dalcorp, he failed to timely file a federal income tax return for tax year 2004.  The tax loss associated with the charge to which he pleaded guilty is $42,770. 

Judge Buchanan scheduled his sentencing for April 27, 2010.  He faces a maximum sentence of one year in prison and a maximum fine of $100,000.

    See! If they'd put a strip club in the strip mall at HWSC, this whole thing could probably have been avoided.

    Gulag: because Anacostia shouldn't have all of the fun.
