HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – A federal grand jury has indicted Charles Alan Pflueger and his father James Henry Pflueger along with three others on charges of tax fraud. The indictments were handed down Wednesday afternoon.

An attorney for Alan Pflueger said that the charges may be the result of errors by his client's tax consultants and that in the end Pflueger will be exonerated.

"If these professionals made any mistakes, Alan is confident that they were unintentional and simply the product of human error, and not part of any criminal conspiracy.  Moreover, we feel not only that we will win this case but are confident that at the end of the day the IRS will owe Alan a refund" said Dave Scheper in a statement.

Two Pflueger employees, Randall Ken Kurata, Julie Ann Kam, and a California CPA, Dennis Lawrence Duban were also charged with tax fraud. The elder Pflueger and Duban were indicted on additional conspiracy charges related to the sale of a California property

Charles Alan Pflueger is the current owner of Pflueger Inc and James Henry Pflueger is the company's former owner. If convicted of the tax fraud charges, the Pflueger's could face up to three years in prison and fines of up to $250,000.
