A mother and son pleaded no contest last month to not filing their general excise tax returns.

Circuit Judge Derrick H.M. Chan fined Yvonne Ramos $10,000 and son Ric Ramos $5,000 on Feb. 22.

The judge deferred Yvonne Ramos' no-contest plea for four years and ordered her to perform 100 hours of community service.

Yvonne Ramos was the bookkeeper and controlled the money for her daughter's business, Bank Equipment Services. She failed to file her annual general excise tax returns from 1995 through 1998. The company sold and serviced money-counting machines to the various financial institutions.

Ric Ramos operated several businesses: Money Equipment Services, MD Technology, Korus Technology and Windward Wireless. He failed to file returns for 1998 and 1999.

The judge deferred his no-contest plea for two years and ordered him to perform 50 hours of community service, pay his fine and file all his past-due tax returns.
