Patricia Hough, 67, was convicted yesterday in Fort Myers, Florida, of conspiring to defraud the Internal Revenue Service and filing false returns from 2005 to 2008. Prosecutors said Hough didn’t tell the IRS about more than $35 million that she and her husband, David Fredrick, made when the schools and real estate were sold in 2007. […] After jurors convicted Hough and were dismissed, Steele set sentencing for Feb. 10. As he set the date, Hough fainted, according to Steele’s courtroom deputy, Brenda Alexander. Paramedics were called, though Hough declined to go with them. She faces as long as five years in prison. [AT]
