Greenfield lawyer gets 6 months on tax charges

Gregory Olchowski of Colrain was also sentenced Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Springfield to one year of probation and fined $8,000.

Prosecutors say Olchowski, who practiced in Greenfield, failed to report his full income from 2005 to 2008. They say he has already paid almost $150,000 in delinquent taxes.

The Recorder reports that his lawyer argued that the charges stemmed from financial stress brought on by a divorce.

The 57-year-old Olchowski said in court that he has always been a man of integrity and his behavior was an aberration.

His license to practice law is suspended.
