SPOKANE — An Omak mental health counselor was sentenced Wednesday to five years on federal probation for filing false income tax returns.

Debra Van Brunt-Oreiro, 59, pleaded guilty last July. She must also pay $250,000 in back taxes based on tax returns she falsified in 2006, 2007 and 2008, underreporting payments for mental health services she provided on a contract with the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation. She also failed to file any tax return in 2009.
