Actor Will Avoid Time Behind Bars In Tax Case

NEW CITY, N.Y. (March 11, 2013)—A lawyer representing Stephen Baldwin says the actor will avoid prison time and will get as much as five years to pay back taxes of about $350,000 under a tentative deal.

Attorney Russell Yankwitt spoke with reporters Monday after a closed-door conference with prosecutors and a judge in Rockland County, N.Y.

Baldwin is accused of not paying New York state income taxes from 2008 to 2010.

Yankwitt said that under a tentative agreement, Baldwin will plead guilty this month to a tax felony.

He said says if Baldwin pays the money within a year, his record will be wiped clean.

If not, he will be sentenced to probation and given five years to pay back the money.

Baldwin, of Grandview, N.Y., starred in 1995's "The Usual Suspects."

He's the youngest of four acting Baldwin brothers.
