Oyer, 71, pleaded in September to filing false tax returns. She was accused originally of recruiting clients for tax preparer Gerald Poynter (nicknamed Brother Jerry Love), who is accused of operating the scheme out of his Blue Springs karate studio. More than a dozen people were charged in the case. The tax-fraud strategy used by the accused involved claiming interest the taxpayer owes as tax refunds.
She will serve six months in jail followed by six months of home confinement and two and a half years of probation.
