The former head of an East Rochester non-profit will serve prison time after prosecutors say he failed to report income.

John Brian Mount, 60, was convicted for filing a false tax return by the United States Attorney’s Office.

Mount, who was the executive director of Regional Area Recreation and Employee Services (RARES), will serve five months in prison followed by five months of home confinement.

RARES is a non-profit business that offers tickets and services to companies at a reduced cost.

Mount was found guilty of failing to report on his tax returns from 2010-2013, totaling over $200,000. Prosecutors say, as a result, Mount did not pay over $60,000 in taxes.
