MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- Mount Vernon Mayor Ernie Davis has been sentenced to one year of probation and fined $10,000 on two misdemeanor tax evasion charges in White Plains Federal Court.
Davis, 76, has been investigated for years by the federal government for evading taxes on a Sanford Boulevard property he sold in 2003 and for failing to file income tax returns in 2011.
Davis pleaded guilty in October to misdemeanor charges. He has steadfastly refused to resign as mayor since pleading guilty.
