(Harrisburg) -- Authorities say a midstate man who ran various labor staffing services in Pennsylvania is facing just over three years in prison for failing to pay about $1 million in federal employment taxes.

Vanny Son has been sentenced in federal court in Harrisburg for conspiracy to defraud the IRS and ordered to pay $683,000 in restitution to the IRS.

Prosecutors say the 33-year-old Son ran five staffing agency firms that supplied day laborers to businesses in the Harrisburg area.

They say between 2006 and 2012, Son's five businesses paid more than $7 million in cash wages to employees without withholding any employment taxes, such as for Social Security and Medicare.

Son was indicted last year, along with two others who helped him.
