Former Tax Court Judge Faces Tax Evasion Charges

A former U.S. tax court judge and her husband face charges of tax evasion.

Officials say Diane Kroupa and her husband, Robert Fackler, conspired to avoid paying $400,000 in federal taxes.

Kroupa was appointed a tax court judge in 2003 and retired in 2014.

According to the charges, the Minnetonka couple understated their income by $1 million.
