An attorney who once helped represent former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky has been sentenced to 20 months in prison on federal tax evasion charges.
Forty-three-year-old Karl Rominger was sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty in July to tax evasion and failure to file tax returns. He was ordered to pay $317,602 restitution.
Rominger, who was part of the legal team that represented Sandusky at his child sex abuse trial, will serve the time after finishing the 5½- to 18-year term imposed after he pleaded guilty in May in Cumberland County in the theft of more than $767,000 from clients.
The Carlisle man apologized to the court, the United States and what he called “all my other victims.” He said “I have a lot of money to pay back.”
