He is now facing federal indictments in both New York and California.

Tax documents revealed he earned nearly two milliondollars in personal income back in 2009 yet never paid the $570,000 he owed in taxes.

He also allegedly has not filed his personal income tax returns since 2010.

This comes as he faces nearly 100-years in prison stemming from charges in two separate cases
