Attorney: Baldwin to pay back taxesStephen Baldwin will avoid jail and will have up to five years to pay $350,000 in back taxes and penalties, his lawyer said yesterday, according to The Associated Press. Attorney Russell Yankwitt said he and prosecutors tentatively agreed that Baldwin will admit in court this month that he repeatedly failed to file his New York State income tax returns. Baldwin, who starred in 1995's "The Usual Suspects," is accused of skipping his 2008, 2009 and 2010 returns.
