Prominent art dealer sentenced to prison for tax fraud
15 Feb 2019

AP — A prominent New York City art dealer once accused by Alec Baldwin of fraud was sentenced to 2½ years in prison Thursday for evading over $3 million in federal taxes, a crime that left her rejected in some art circles and saying she feels like a pariah.

Mary Boone, 66, dropped her face into open hands as U.S. District Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein announced the sentence in a Manhattan courtroom packed with supporters, many of them artists.

Her lawyer had requested home incarceration at most, saying she may have to close Mary Boone Gallery’s two Manhattan addresses. Boone said outside court she didn’t know whether they would be closed.
