A local business owner has been convicted of withholding upwards of $400,000 from New York State as part of an under-reporting scheme to avoid paying taxes.
Rosanna Calascibetta, who is one of the owners of a regional pizza chain called Cam’s was convicted in a bench trial. She was convicted of two counts of grand larceny, as well as 23 other lesser felonies, according to 13WHAM.
Calascibetta and her husband Carmelo were both charged with underreporting their income almost two years ago for a period of years. The duo owned seven Cam’s locations at the time.
Altogether that income was under-reported by $5 million.
The two faced dozens of charges for their role in the scheme. However, Carmelo Calascibetta was found not guilty.
Meanwhile Rosanna’s sentencing is scheduled to take place in April.
The Calascibetta’s did not, and do not own the Cam’s location in Geneva.
