Milwaukee pastor pleads guilty to filing false tax return


MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A pastor and private school administrator in Milwaukee has pleaded guilty to filing a false income tax return.

41-year-old Gregory Goner struck a plea deal in which two other counts were dropped – stealing federal funds and wire fraud. He also agreed to pay $68,000 in restitution to the IRS.

Goner was the pastor of the Spirit Governed Baptist Church in Milwaukee – and he was the president of the Excel Academy. The school received federal grants, as well as state tax funds to educate low-income kids under the state’s voucher program.

Prosecutors said Goner filed a false income tax return in 2007 when his church bought investment properties for him, covered repairs, and gave him $7,500 for his personal use.

His lawyer said Goner made mistakes with his tax forms – but there was no merit to the fraud and theft counts.
