CHARLOTTE AMALIE, U.S. Virgin Islands (AP) — The former chief executive of a U.S. Virgin Islands hospital has been convicted of tax fraud.
After a two-day trial in U.S. District Court on St. Thomas, a federal jury convicted Rodney Miller of knowingly filing a fraudulent tax return in 2006. He shaved roughly $250,000 off his reported total income.
The U.S. Justice Department says in a Wednesday statement that Miller faces a maximum penalty of three years in prison and a fine of $250,000. Sentencing is scheduled for December.
Miller was the CEO of the Roy L. Schneider Hospital in St. Thomas from 2003 until 2007.
In 2011, a separate embezzlement case against Miller and two other hospital executives ended in a mistrial.
