A 'long weekend' in jail and a big bill to pay for Victoria restaurant owner who evaded taxes

At the time he was charged, Paul Carlson owed more than $440,000 in taxes, penalties and interest

The owner of a popular restaurant in downtown Victoria has been sentenced to a few days in jail and ordered to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for failing to pay taxes for several years.

Paul M. Carlson, 62, of Excelsior, owner of Vic's Bar & Grill, was sentenced last week in Carver County District Court after pleading guilty to a felony for failing to file tax returns.

Judge Martin Fallon's sentence calls for Carlson to serve a "long weekend" in jail from 7 p.m. on a Friday until 7 a.m. the following Monday. Fallon set aside another 90 days in jail and ordered Carlson to be on supervised probation for five years.
