Judge sentences Michael Salisbury on tax charge

A judge has sentenced an Alabama man to two years in prison on a misdemeanor charge of failing to pay taxes.

Michael K. Salisbury had a close relationship with Louisville millionaire Owsley Brown Frazier, a great-grandson of the founder of liquor giant Brown-Forman.  Frazier enlisted Salisbury to help him build a world-class gun collection.

Judge Charles Simpson sentenced Salisbury to 24 months and one year of supervised release. Salisbury must also pay a $25,000 fine.

Back in January, Salisbury was cleared of charges he sold Frazier antique guns at inflated prices.

Attorneys for Salisbury argued that he does not deserve any prison time.  They say they plan to appeal the sentence.
