Former Bechtel tax manager acquitted

A federal jury acquitted a former global tax manager for Bechtel of charges that he had caused the company to file a false tax return, The Recorder reports.

Prosecutors said the tax manager, Mark Muntean, knew the tax credit was improper, but Muntean's lawyer said his client relied on subordinates, who failed to give him all necessary information.
