MADISON, Wis. -

A former Madison man pleaded guilty Tuesday to failing to file income tax returns for 2006, 2007 and 2008, according to a state Department of Justice release.

Eric T. Plantenberg, 42, of Bend, Ore., faces a maximum of one year in federal prison and a $100,000 fine, officials said. He is scheduled for sentencing on July 8.
