A Highlandville business owner has pleaded guilty to failing to pay his employees’ FICA taxes and his own income taxes.

Forty-six-year-old Paul Rose, the owner of J. B. Enterprises, Inc., admitted in federal court on Monday that he withheld more than 37-thousand dollars in employee wages over a period of 3 years which he did not turn over to the IRS. He also reportedly owes more than 375-thousand dollars in unpaid income taxes, according to the Justice Department.

Rose is subject to a sentence of up to 6 years in federal prison, plus a fine of up to 35-thousand dollars. A sentencing hearing will be scheduled after the U.S. Probation Office completes a pre-sentence investigation.
