A former Amtrak employee recently fled to avoid going to prison due to tax evasion. As a jury delivered its verdict of 29 guilty felony counts, the 60-year-old defendant was nowhere to be found. The woman was found guilty of insurance fraud, tax evasion, perjury and grand theft from her employer's retirement board. She received in excess of $500,000 from disability payments due to accidents that the prosecution says she faked. She could receive up to 33 years in prison, but she escaped while she was free on a $50,000 bail that the judge ordered during her trial that lasted two months.
