Ex-State Delegate Admits to Crimes for Which He Was Not Charged

Former state Del. William Madonna pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court on June 4 to structuring cash transactions to avoid bank reporting requirements, which are triggered whenever the amounts involved are $10,000 or more. But in the statement of facts attached to his plea (see attached PDF), Madonna also admitted to criminal conduct for which he was not charged. The statement of facts revealed that Madonna also made "false statements and material omissions" to FBI investigators and that he "knowingly failed to timely file his personal income tax return for the year 2003" until after investigators learned of his failure to file. Madonna is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 2, and faces a maximum of five years' imprisonment followed by a year of supervised release, according to a press release from the U.S. Attorney's Office in Maryland.
