The owner of a Penn Hills-based home improvement company will spend one year and six months in prison for failing to hand over the federal income taxes he collected from employees' pay in 2006 and 2007, a federal judge ruled Wednesday.

Richard D. Edwards, 56, of Monroeville pleaded guilty in February to three counts of failing to relinquish the taxes withheld from the paychecks of employees at Custom Patio Rooms. Edwards has already paid the Internal Revenue Service the $316,416 he owed, according to court documents filed by his attorney Stephen Stallings.

U.S. District Judge Gustave Diamond also sentenced Edwards to three years of probation.
