MLB | Koosman receives six-month sentence for tax evasion

The Associated Press reports a federal judge sentenced former major league pitcher Jerry Koosman to six months in prison Thursday, Sept. 3, for not paying his taxes. Prosecutors say Koosman, a former All-Star who helped the New York Mets win the 1969 World Series, didn't pay federal income taxes for 2002, 2003 and 2004. He pleaded guilty in May to willfully failing to file taxes for 2002, a misdemeanor, in a deal with prosecutors.
