Baltimore’s Police Commissioner Darryl DeSousa is in some hot water!!
The top cop of the City of Baltimore is accused of not filing income taxes, both State & Federal for three straight years – 2013, 2014 & 2015. The charges against DeSousa are misdemeanors.
If the charges are proven, DeSousa faces up to one year in prison and a $25,000 fine for each of the three counts.
The U.S. Attorney’s office alleged that Commissioner Darryl DeSousa “willfully failed to file a federal return for tax years 2013, 2014, and 2015, despite having been a salaried employee of the Baltimore Police Department in each of those years.”
DeSousa Statement: “While there is no excuse for my failure to fulfill my obligations as a citizen and public official, my only explanation is that I failed to sufficiently prioritize my personal affairs. Naturally, this is a source of embarrassment for me and I deeply regret any embarrassment it has caused the police department and the city of Baltimore.”
