A couple in Pennsylvania was sentenced to prison after police discovered more than $800,000 in cash in their home. Matthew and Kim Forney’s troubles began when their daughter’s boyfriend shot them in a domestic dispute. After the police arrived at the scene they discovered bloody footprints leading to a pool house that contained a large trash bag filled with cash. Later they found a gun safe with more bundles of cash.
From 2014 to 2017 the Forneys pocketed the cash and only deposited checks from their business sales into their business bank accounts. They only reported check and credit card sales on their tax returns. They maintained meticulous records and the cash found in their home was attached to business receipts.
The Forneys unreported income totaled $817,713, which resulted in $292,066 in unpaid taxes. Matthew Forney was sentenced to 12 months and one day in prison and his wife Kim was sentenced to 12 months.
The charges against the daughter’s boyfriend were dropped after a judge ruled certain evidence inadmissible in court.
