Motorcycle Dealer Sentenced in Federal Case


BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A federal judge has sentenced the manager of a Denham Springs motorcycle dealership to 30 months in prison and fined the business $500,000.

The Advocate reports  Kevin Paul Calmes, manager of Calmes Motorsports LLC in Denham Springs, was convicted Aug. 1 by a jury in Baton Rouge federal court on a charge that he laundered money for drug dealers.

Both Calmes and his family's motorcycle and all-terrain vehicle dealership were convicted on three counts related to their handling of cash transactions greater than $10,000. The transactions were structured in a ways that avoided the filing of cash reports that would have drawn the attention of the Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies.

Calmes must report to federal prison on Jan. 7.
