With his second trial slated to start next week, Beaumont electrician Calvin Gary Walker pleaded guilty Tuesday, July 17, to failure to pay federal income taxes, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced.

Walker was under indictment on 37 counts of fraud and other charges alleging he over-billed taxpayers by submitting falsified invoices to the Beaumont Independent School District for electrical work. He was tried in December 2011 but jurors were deadlocked, failing to reach a verdict, and U.S. Judge Ron Clark declared a mistrial in the case. Clark reset the case for July.
