Attorney Agrees To Plead To Federal Tax Charges
SCRANTON — An attorney from Lackawanna County has agreed to plead guilty to federal tax charges.
Danielle Ross of Jermyn represented the interests of children in custody cases in county court as guardian ad litem.
Earlier this year, federal investigators accused her of failing to pay taxes on money that she received above her base pay.
Ross was scheduled to go to trial later this month.
Instead, federal court documents show that she has agreed to plead guilty to attempted tax evasion.
She’ll also pay a fine of up to $100,000.
