Physician is indicted on tax evasion charges

A London physician who worked in several eastern Kentucky towns is indicted on federal charges of tax evasion.

The IRS arrested 63 year old Werner Grentz Tuesday.

He allegedly earned six figures yearly between 2005 to 2010 but failed to file tax returns.

Court records indicate Grentz falsely claimed he was exempt from having federal income tax withheld and hid his income in bank accounts of companies he controlled.

If convicted, Grentz faces up to five years in prison.
