Nifty Fifty's co-owner sentenced to 15 months
PHILADELPHIA - November 18, 2013 (WPVI) -- One of the owners of a popular local restaurant chain learned his sentence for a tax scheme Monday.
Robert Mattei of Del Ray Beach, Florida, who co-owns the Nifty Fifty's restaurants, will spend 15 months in prison for failing to pay millions of dollars in taxes.
Mattei is just one of five co-owners who pleaded guilty in connection with the fraud.
Prosecutors say they've been lying about their earnings since the restaurants opened back in 1986.
