A Sicklerville couple that owned a towing and auto repair business has been sentenced for collecting more than $50,000 in sales tax from 1991 to 2007, but never turning it over to the state, said state Attorney General Anne Milgram.
Camden County Court Judge Irwin J. Snyder sentenced James Hendricks, 52, to 364 days in jail, followed by probation, while his wife, Mary Ann Clark-Hendricks, 46, was sentenced to five years of probation, Milgram said last week. The couple also will pay $51,560 in restitution, plus penalties and interest.
Last October, Hendricks pleaded guilty to theft by failure to make required disposition of property received and failure to remit sales taxes, and Clark-Hendricks pleaded guilty to third-degree theft by failure to make required disposition of property received, Milgram said.
The company rang up more than $960,000 in sales from 1991 through 2007, but the defendants only remitted a total of $1,046 of sales tax to the state during that period, Milgram said.
