Escondido man pleads guilty in tax evasion scheme

February 2 an Escondido resident, Stuart Weinstock, 64, pleaded guilty to a federal charge of filing a false tax return, and admitted to making fraudulent donations to a rabbi of the Chabad of Poway.

Weinstock is one of 10 defendants involved in a series of tax evasion schemes connected to the same Poway rabbi, Yisroel Goldstein.

The federal prosecutors said that three quarters of the money that Weinstock claimed as a charitable deduction was given back to him, enabling him to evade paying $100,000 in taxes.
