December 7 , 2012
Actor Stephen Baldwin was charged with felony tax evasion in New York state on Thursday.
The younger brother of 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin entered a not guilty plea to the single count of repeated failure to file personal income tax returns.
The 46-year-old actor faces up to four years in prison if convicted.
Prosecutors accuse Baldwin of failing to pay state personal income taxes from 2008 to 2010 totaling $350,000.
Baldwin said that he had poor representation during the period in question and filed for bankruptcy protection in 2009.
He is due in court for a hearing on February 5.
