CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The owner of a Roselawn club that has had several violent incidents has been sentenced to 15 months of house arrest due to failure to pay taxes.

Andrew E. Williams, 50, of Villa Hills, Kentucky, also has to pay nearly $50,000 in unpaid taxes. In August, Williams admitted that he withheld money for taxes from his employees' paychecks between October 2006 and April 2009 but never paid the money to the IRS.

Senior U.S. District Judge Herman J. Weber also fined Williams $3,000 during his sentencing on Tuesday.

Williams' plea agreement also obligates him to file complete and accurate tax returns with the IRS for all tax years and periods up to and including the date of sentencing which were required to be filed under U.S. tax laws but have not yet been filed. He also agreed to file with the IRS complete and accurate amended returns for all previously filed incomplete or inaccurate tax returns, and pay all taxes, penalties, and interest due and owing to the IRS.

Williams owns Club Aqua, which operated under the name Club Ritz during the time of the incidents. Several shootings have occurred at the club's location, including the deadly shooting of Dexter Burroughs in May 2010.
