A former security guard business owner pleaded guilty Friday to failing to pay employees and trying to evade taxes.

Michael Vigil, 31, pleaded guilty in 3rd District Court to theft of services, failure to file withholding tax returns and attempted tax evasion, according to Utah State Tax Commission news release. The North Salt Lake man, who co-owned Salt Lake Valley Protective Services, is scheduled to be sentenced in September.

Between 2006 and 2010, Vigil failed to pay multiple people’s wages, as well as taxes to the state, said Charlie Roberts spokesman for the Utah State Tax Commission in a statement.

Vigil owes about $57,000 — plus penalties — to victims and in excess of $200,000 to the state, Roberts said in a statement.

Vigil’s co-owner, Charles Snively, who pleaded guilty to similar charges earlier, was placed on probation and ordered to pay restitution, according to the release.
