Bittermans Convicted of Tax Evasion


Chester Bitterman Jr. and three of his sons, Craig Bitterman, C. Grant Bitterman and Curtis Bitterman of Lancaster County, were found guilty of tax evasion by a federal jury. In addition, Craig Bitterman was also convicted of obstruction of justice. Thus ends a three-week long trial where the jury agreed with the prosecution that the men created an elaborate ‘shell game’ to dodge paying federal taxes.

Chester is the father and the rest are brothers of Chester “Chet” Bitterman III, a missionary to Colombia who was kidnapped and killed by Colombian guerillas in 1981 while on a mission trip with Wycliffe Bible Translators.
