Former NC State coach Sidney Lowe pleads guilty to tax evasion
Former North Carolina State coach Sidney Lowe will do a month and a half in jail and face other penalties as a result of ditching out on paying his taxes for three years.
Sidney Lowe has pleaded guilty to three years worth of tax evasion.
According to the AP, the former North Carolina State coach -- who was also on the Wolfpack's 1983 championship team -- was in Wake County District Court on Wednesday, and with the guilty plea, he'll not have to spend 45 days in jail, but instead have 36 months of "unsupervised probation." Lowe will also be obligated to undergo 100 hours of community service within the next 365 days -- and of course has to pay back the taxes he evaded: nearly $80,000.
"The agency says Lowe didn't file his state tax returns for those years even after he was contacted about it -- but he did file them prior to his court date," according to the Associated Press.
Lowe went 86-78 in five seasons at the school and did not reach the NCAA tournament.
