Texas Father, Daughter Facing Felonies for Fuel Tax Fraud

Posted on April 1st, 2010 No Comments

A man from Milam County and his daughter are facing felony charges after being arrested Monday.

According to officials at the Texas Comptroller’s Office, Don H. Roddam was arrested with his daughter, 50 year-old Sandi Roddam Richter, for felony motor fuel tax fraud.

The father-daughter team was indicted by a Travis County grand jury, following an investigation by the Texas Comptroller’s Office into the Cam-Rock Oil company, a motor fuel distribution company. The indictments contend that Roddam, Richter and the Cam-Rock Oil Company intentionally did not remit motor fuels taxes they collected on fuel sales. Richter faces two additional charges of falsifying fuel tax reports and failing to retain documents as required by law.

The cases are being prosecuted by the Motor Fuels Tax Fraud Division, a state-funded unit of the Travis County District Attorney’s Office.

All charges against Roddam and Richter are second-degree felonies. If convicted, both could face up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
