SCRANTON, LACKAWANNA COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — A Scranton funeral home director who plead guilty to tax evasion charges in February will spend the next 15 months in prison.

61-year-old Al Hughes was sentenced Thursday for failing to report $900,000 to the federal government. Prosecutors say he took more than $1 million from customers for funerals then diverted it for personal use.

Hughes is ordered to report to prison in September.
