OXNARD : Bar Owner Indicted in Tax Fraud Case


The owner of an Oxnard exotic bar was indicted by a federal grand jury Thursday on charges of filing false tax returns from 1988 to 1990.

Lynda Aguilera of Ventura, owner of the Fantasia Nite Club on Oxnard Boulevard, is accused of reporting gross receipts in those years that were well below what she knew she had made, according to Assistant U.S. Atty. Margo Thole.

Aguilera, 44, was indicted on three counts of subscribing to false tax returns.

She faces a maximum sentence of nine years in prison and a fine of $750,000 if convicted.

The case was investigated in Oxnard by special agents of the Internal Revenue Service’s criminal investigation division.
