An Arkansas businessman was sentenced to 27 months in prison for filing false income tax returns and obstructing IRS laws.

Richard C. Mathews, 61, of Conway, Ark., was also ordered to pay $56,904.29 in restitution to the IRS.

Mathews was convicted by a jury on five counts of filing false income tax returns and one count of obstructing the IRS.

The Arkansas man operated a multilevel marketing network. The more people a member solicited to join, the more money the members and Mathews could make.

Mathews stated on his federal tax returns that he had gross receipts of $22,201 for the five-year period from 2004 to 2008, when in fact his bank records showed business deposits of $245,300.42.
