Former Sullivan & Cromwell Lawyer Sentenced to Two Years in Prison for Tax Evasion

Federal  prosecutors in Manhattan had alleged that John J. O’Brien, a former partner at Sullivan & Cromwell LLP, avoided reporting or paying taxes on more than $10 million income over a period of more than eight years. Prosecutors said he instead used the money to help fund a rare books and manuscripts business operated by his partner, as well as for international travel and renovations on a weekend home in the Adirondacks.  O'Brien will serve a two year prison term.

These lawyers think that they can get around the law by finding some tax loopholes that they can take advantage of. Too bad they did a bad job in hiding the evidence.
