Former D.C. club owner gets prison term for tax evasion
The former owner of several D.C. nightclubs was sentenced Tuesday in the District's federal court to 38 months in prison for failing to pay nearly $1 million in taxes, federal prosecutors said.
Abdul K. Khanu, who owned DC Live, Platinum and H2O, was found guilty in December of two counts of tax evasion.
Prosecutors said he skimmed millions of dollars from two of his clubs clubs and used the money to pay wages in cash and for personal purchases.
When authorities raided his house, they found $1.9 million and a "double set of books and records," prosecutors said in a news release.
