Everett, Wash., Oct. 29, 2009 — The owner of Master’s Touch Drywall pled guilty today to felony theft of sales tax and workers’ compensation fraud, and agreed to pay more than $2.1 million in restitution.
Snohomish County Superior Court Judge Ellen J. Fair gave Mark D. Standley, 53, until May 5, 2010, to make nearly $1.5 million in restitution to the Department of Revenue and nearly $650,000 to the Department of Labor & Industries (L&I). The restitution includes penalties and interest.
The judge indicated that the length of Standley’s sentence, which could be as much as nine and one-half years in prison, will depend on how much restitution he makes before his sentencing date.
