Hawaii Man Gets 42 Months For Fraud, Tax Charges

By June 19, 2016September 29th, 2016No Comments

The former executive director of the Painting and Decorating Contractors Association of Hawaii was sentenced to 42 months in prison for mail fraud and tax offenses.

Raymond Fujii, 68, of Kailua, Hawaii, embezzled $1.483 million and failed to report that income on his federal tax returns. Fujii used his position to embezzle money from the Painting and Decorating Contractors Association of Hawaii and the Painting Industry of Hawaii Trade Promotion and Charity Fund, a trust fund that promotes the local painting industry.

A judge described Fujii’s conduct as a “naked betrayal” of the painting association’s trust and a tax crime.
