Andrew A. Agard faces a maximum of three years in prison and a $250,000 fine when he is sentenced in January by U.S. District Judge Leslie Kobayashi.

Agard admitted filing a false return for the 2006 tax year, reporting that he had gross receipts of $294,000 when the accurate number was $630,000, according to prosecutors.

Court records do not identify Agard as a lawyer but Assistant U.S. Attorney Les Osborne, who prosecuted the case, said Agard identified himself as an attorney when he entered his guilty plea before U.S. Magistrate Judge Richard Puglisi.

According to his website, Agard is a graduate of the William S. Richardson School of Law at the University of Hawaii and has been a practicing personal injury attorney for the past 20 years.

Agard did not respond a request for comment left at his office today.
