HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Three people from Pflueger Incorporated charged with tax evasion are due in court Friday morning.

One of them is Alan Pflueger.

He's the son of the founder of one of Hawaii's biggest auto dealers, James Pflueger.

Alan and two company executives are scheduled to enter their pleas Friday.

They're suspected of setting up tax shelters in the Cook Islands and Switzerland, and deducting personal expenses as business expenses.

Alan pleaded not guilty Friday to tax fraud.

The Pfluegers' attorney attributes the mistake to human error and says there's no evidence of deliberate wrongdoing.
