A financial adviser to celebrities, including Wesley Snipes, has been charged with carrying out a $30 million fraud on his clients.
The charges against Kenneth Starr were announced by federal prosecutors in New York.
A news conference was scheduled for later Thursday.
Starr is head of New York-based Starr and Co. The name of his lawyer was not immediately on record.
Starr testified in 2008 that he warned Snipes that he could get into trouble if he didn't pay his taxes.
Snipes, the star of the "Blade" movies, was convicted in Florida of three counts of failing to file tax returns. He was cleared on fraud and conspiracy charges.
