Del. psychic's future includes a year and a day in federal prison

WILMINGTON, Del. - (AP) - A federal judge has sentenced a Delaware woman to a year and a day in prison for tax fraud related to her psychic readings business.

Forty-year-old Candy Miller was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty in March to one count of filing a false tax return. Prosecutors dropped two other counts.

Miller admitted filing false tax returns for the years 2010, 2011 and 2012, underreporting her total income by more than $1 million.

The unreported income was received from clients who were told by Miller that she was removing the negativity from their lives by anonymously donating their money to charities she had selected.

Prosecutors say Miller instead kept all the money for herself.
  
Authorities say the scheme resulted in a tax loss of $337,430.
