— A longtime bail bondsman in Missouri pleaded guilty in federal court here Friday to two federal felony charges of making and filing false tax returns Friday and admitted dodging $114,406 in taxes, prosecutors said.

Jack L. Allison, 60, of Mexico, waived indictment by a grand jury and admitted that he had understated income from his company, American Guarantee Surety, Inc., from 2004 to 2007, prosecutors said.

Allison ran what was once one of the largest bail bond companies in Missouri, headed the Missouri Professional Bail Bond Association for a time and even helped draft legislation on bondsman in 2004.
