A federal judge on Tuesday sentenced a Latrobe man to six months of home detention for failing to file tax returns for three years while he was operating a Caribbean medical school.

Thomas M. Uhrin, age unavailable, pleaded guilty Tuesday and was immediately sentenced for failing to file tax returns in 2007, 2008 and 2009. He was co-owner of St. Theresa's Medical University on St. Kitt's Island, prosecutors say.

The school closed in 2009 after St. Kitt's Ministry of Health investigated it, prosecutors say. As part of a plea bargain, U.S. District Judge Joy Flowers Conti immediately sentenced Uhrin to five years of probation with the first six months on home confinement and 200 hours of community service.
