A Topeka tax preparer facing federal tax charges now faces an additional charge of trying to flee from prosecution.

Thirty-three-year-old John Karundo Mukundi, of Topeka, was indicted in March with 14 counts of filing a false federal income tax return, 12 counts of wire fraud and 12 counts of aggravated identity theft. It was alleged that Mukundi used tax preparation software to submit fraudulent returns electronically.

He was released on condition that he promised to appear in court and to remain and Shawnee County and to not obtain a passport. Yet on March 29, Mukundi is said to have flown from Chicago to Washington, D.C. where he went to the Kenyan embassy to obtain an emergency certificate for travel to Kenya. He then boarded a flight out of the country, but was placed under arrest and taken from the plane.If convicted on this new charge of fleeing to avoid prosecution, he faces a sentence of imprisonment and penalty to be decided by the court.
