MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - The former CEO of a Milwaukee nursing home is given 2 years in prison for not paying her taxes. Federal prosecutors say Karen Mason pleaded guilty to take more than $1 million over a four-year period and not reporting that money as taxable income.
Mason was previously known as Karen Mueller. She reportedly used the money taken from the Havenwood Nursing and Rehabilitation Center for jewelry, home furnishings, cars, entertainment and travel -- including $30,000 on a wedding and honeymoon for one of her children. Mason admitted underpaying her taxes by $360,000.
