Stephen Baldwin was arrested Thursday on charges that he has not filed state income taxes for three years.
The youngest Baldwin brother pleaded not-guilty at an arraignment in Rockland County, New York. He was released on his own recognizance and is due back in court on February 5th.
District Attorney Thomas Zugibe’s office released a statement that Baldwin failed to file for 2008, 2009, and 2010 tax seasons. Baldwin owes over $350,000 including penalties and interest.
Stephen Baldwin, who became a conservative political activist a few years ago, has cooperated with officials over the year long investigation into his finances. He wrote a check for $100,000 as part of a down payment in “good faith.” Baldwin could face up to four years in state prison if convicted.
