Two days after everyone paid taxes, and thousands protested this basic fact, one guy got off free on charges of evading his taxes. Indianapolis 500 and Dancing With The Stars champion Helio Castroneves was acquitted on tax evasion charges.
Castroneves was charged last October with failing to report $5.5 million. The AP just reported that Castroneves, as well as his sister Kati and lawyer Alan Miller, were also acquitted.
