Oregon Attorney General John Kroger Thursday announced the guilty plea and sentencing of anti-tax activist Bill Sizemore on felony tax evasion charges. 

Sizemore was indicted by a grand jury in October 2009 for failing to file state income tax returns for 2006, 2007 and 2008.

"Everybody has to pay their taxes," said Kroger. "There are no exceptions."

 Sizemore pleaded guilty before Judge Claudia Burton in Marion County Circuit Court to three counts of Oregon Personal Income Tax Evasion, a Class C Felony. Sizemore received a presumptive sentence under Oregon Sentencing Guidelines of 36 months of supervised probation. As part of his probation, Sizemore must immediately serve 30 days in Marion County Jail and will not be eligible for early release.
