Ron Isley Sentenced To 3 Years In Prison For Tax Evasion

Ronald Isley, front man of the Isley Brothers, has been sentenced to three years and one month in prison for tax evasion, and ordered to pay $3.1 million in back taxes to the IRS. ...

The only thing Ron Isley should be convicted of is criminal funkytude, reckless musical chameleonism, and wielding an unlicensed pot belly.

Or as LA Weekly web maestro Mark Mauer put it:
Thank goodness that criminal Ron Isley is off the streets, while fine upstanding citizens like Frank Quattrone can avoid jail time for his conviction of funneling millions to his pals and covering up the evidence and tampering with the jury.

“According to reports, Mr. Quattrone will receive $100 million to $120 million in overdue compensation, so long as he abides by an agreement and does not break the law for a year.”

Hang tough, Mr. I.
