Inyo County District Attorney news release
On September 13, 2017, Kenneth Rossy, husband of Dawndee Rossy, entered pleas of no contest to two counts of felony violations of Revenue & Taxation Code sections 19706, failure to file California Income Tax returns for the 2009 and 2010 tax years.
In exchange for his plea, other counts alleging conspiracy to misappropriate government funds were dismissed.
Mr. Rossy was placed on three years of probation and ordered to serve 364 days in the Inyo County Jail. As required by law, he was granted credits for previous time served in actual custody and on electronic monitoring.
In addition to fines and fees, he was ordered to pay restitution to the Franchise Tax Board in the sum of $84,697.00. He is also prohibited from any employment wherein he would manage the financial affairs of others, and is required to obey all laws.
Dawndee Rossy has previously been sentenced to serve nine years in prison for her conviction of misappropriating government funds in a case which was initially investigated in January, 2013.
