WILLOUGHBY HILLS, OH (WOIO) -

A three-count criminal information was filed charging a Willoughby Hills man with filing false tax returns, according to Steven Dettelbach, U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

Alexander J. Cucu filed false tax returns in 2008, 2009 and 2010, underreporting his income by approximately $139,434, according to the information.

This case is being handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Justin Roberts, following an investigation by the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigations.

If convicted, the defendant's sentence will be determined by the court after a review of the federal sentencing guidelines and factors unique to the case, including the defendant's prior criminal record, the defendant's role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial, in which it will be the government's burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
