Former Strip Club Owner Pleads Guilty To Tax Evasion

The former owner of the Crazy Horse Too strip club pleaded guilty Thursday to evading more than $1.7 million in employment taxes.

According to the Office of the U.S. Attorney for the District of Nevada, Frederick John Rizzolo owed the taxes from 2000 to 2002, from paying employees in cash but failing to keep accurate records of the payments to the club’s bookkeepers.

Rizzolo is further accused of trying to hide his assets from the IRS in the years following the fraud. His sentencing is set for September 15. If the court accepts the parties’ agreements, Rizzolo will be sentenced to two years in prison and ordered to pay $2.6 million in restitution to the IRS.
