HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A lawyer who represented former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky at his child sex abuse trial faces new tax-related charges.
The U.S. attorney's office in Harrisburg said Wednesday that 42-year-old Karl Rominger is charged with attempted tax evasion and failure to file a federal tax return.
Prosecutors say charges against the former attorney from Carlisle cover 2006 to 2012.
He signed a plea agreement last month that's pending before the judge.
Rominger also awaits sentencing in August after pleading guilty in Cumberland County in May to stealing $767,000 in client funds.
Prosecutors say he spent the money on gambling and other interests.
Rominger's lawyer says his client is in treatment for compulsive gambling and has a realistic restitution plan.
Sandusky is appealing a 45-count conviction.
