A Hawera man was sent to prison for tax evasion when he appeared in the Hawera District Court yesterday.

Roger Dennis Brown, in his 50s, had earlier pleaded guilty to four charges and would have avoided jail if he had paid the outstanding reparation of $24,035.56.

Instead he was jailed for nine months by Judge Allan Roberts.

Brown also had previous dishonesty convictions.

An order was made for the reparation to be paid.
