WILLMAR - Robert Charles Johnson, 51, of Willmar was convicted Wednesday of a felony theft charge for overstating income tax withholding and receiving an excess of $15,000.
Johnson was sentenced to one year in prison, stayed for five years. He was also sentenced to 60 days of jail and placed on five years of probation.
He and his wife, Kristine Marie Johnson, 52, had faced four counts of false or fraudulent tax returns, four counts of failure to pay or collect taxes and four counts of theft.
All remaining counts, along with complaint against Kristine Johnson, were dismissed Wednesday as part of a plea agreement.
According to the criminal complaint drafted by the Minnesota Department of Revenue, the husband and wife jointly claimed an additional $5,412 of Minnesota Individual Income Tax withholding, which allowed the couple to receive refunds of $3,786 greater than for what they were entitled to each year between 2009-12.
Minnesota Department of Revenue auditors examined the couple’s income tax returns and found that the couple has additional outstanding income tax debt of $9,114, including tax, penalty and interest.

Wolf was granted a public defender Thursday and is scheduled for an omnibus hearing March 24 on these charges.
According to Tribune archives, Wolf was allegedly traveling southbound on State Highway 9 around 5:50 p.m. Oct. 31 in New London when his vehicle went off the road near Second Avenue and struck a tree.
He and his passenger, Kathleen Huiras-Weber, 48, both suffered serious injuries and were flown to St. Cloud Hospital. Huiras-Weber was later diagnosed with multiple fractured bones, according to the criminal complaint.
Law enforcement took a sample of Wolf’s blood around 8:47 p.m., which revealed a blood alcohol content of 0.137 percent. The legal limit is 0.08.
