Fed Cut Tax Evaders Utilities

According to the Associated Press, the federal government has cut the utilities on convicted tax evaders Ed and Elaine Brown. The couple insists that federal income tax laws are invalid and were sentenced to 5 1/2 years in prison in April 2007. Authorities surrounded their property last week and cut their phone, power and Internet service in an effort to get the couple to report to prison. U.S. Marshal Steve Monier acknowledged that waiting out the couple could take months, but that time was on authorities' side. He said he hoped prison would seem like an agreeable option for the Browns after a summer without air conditioning and possibly a winter without heat.
