Colorado Springs chiropractor convicted of filing false income tax returns

DENVER - A Colorado Springs chiropractor has been convicted of filing false income tax returns, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office in Denver. 

Prosecutors said Thomas Gehrmann, 45, was found guilty of conspiracy to defraud the United States and filing three false income tax returns. 

He and a co-defendant, 53-year-old Eric Carlson of Colorado Springs, were indicted in July 2015. According to prosecutors, in 2008, 2009, and 2010, Gehrmann and Carlson failed to report money they had diverted from their chiropractic business. 

Carlson pled guilty last month to filing a false tax return. He faces up to three years in prison when he is sentenced on February 8. 

Gehrmann faces up to 14 years in prison when he is sentenced on March 19.
