Grammy-winning trumpeter Phil Driscoll, who shifted from pop music to gospel, was convicted today on federal charges that he used his Christian music ministry in a tax-cheating scheme.
AP reported that a jury found Driscoll, 58, guilty of charges of conspiracy and evading some federal income taxes owed for 1996 through 1999. His wife, Lynne, was tried with him on the same charges. The jury acquitted her of all but one count and could resume deliberations on that charge.
