A Western Massachusetts lawyer has been sentenced to six months in federal prison on tax evasion charges. Gregory Olchowski of Colrain was also sentenced Wednesday in US District Court in Springfield to one year of probation and fined $8,000. Prosecutors said Olchowski, who practiced in Greenfield, failed to report his full income from 2005 to 2008. They said he has already paid almost $150,000 in delinquent taxes. The Recorder reported that his lawyer argued that the charges stemmed from financial stress brought on by a divorce. Olchowski, 57, said in court that his behavior was an aberration. His license to practice law is currently suspended. )
