Cromartie Apologizes in Tax Evasion Case


Columbia City Councilman, E.W. Cromartie was charged and convicted of tax evasion and upon sentencing, apologized to the judge for his ‘errors in judgment’, to which the US Assistant Attorney Mark Moore responded to the judge, “These aren’t just errors in judgment. They are crimes”.

Cromartie’s sentence was a prison sentence of 12 months and one day, repayment of more than $58,000 in back taxes over 3 years broken up into payments of $1,600 per month while on supervised release from prison starting from 60 days after his release. The sentence was part of a plea agreement between Cromartie and the federal authorities. He will be imprisoned in the Federal Work Camp in Williamsburg County beginning sometime next year.
