DENVER (AP) — A federal jury in Erie, Pa., has convicted a former Littleton man of conspiring to defraud the Internal Revenue Service.

Federal prosecutors said Thursday that Donald Turner, also known as Donald Wood, had promoted a book about how to avoid paying federal income tax.

They say Meadville, Pa., veterinarian Daniel Leveto also promoted the book and sold his veterinary business to an offshore entity to hide income from the IRS. Leveto was sentenced in 2005 to nearly four years in prison.

Turner faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine at a sentencing hearing set for Jan. 18.
