Mercer doctor indicted on tax evasion charges
By Bill Archer
Bluefield Daily Telegraph
BLUEFIELD — A federal grand jury meeting in Beckley on Wednesday returned a seven-count indictment charging a Mercer County osteopathic doctor and a lawyer from Maryland with one count of conspiracy and six counts of income tax evasion.
Dr. Randy Michael Brodnik, 47, of Bluefield, Va., and Anthony Ira Kritt, 54, of Crofton Md., are both named in the conspiracy count of the 27-page indictment, and both are named in five of the other six counts. Brodnik, identified as “president and sole owner of Bluefield Women’s Center Inc.,” in the indictment, is named alone in count two of the indictment.
The government alleges that,“from about 1998 and continuing through at least October 2008,” Brodnik and Kritt,“created and fostered an elaborate ‘employee leasing’ scheme designed to conceal Brodnik’s income from the (Internal Revenue Service).” The government alleges further that Brodnik and Kritt “created and used a wide variety (of) sophisticated financial devices including: sham contracts, international nominee bank accounts, trusts, shell corporations and other conduit entities,” to “defraud the IRS and impede and obstruct its efforts to assess and collect more than $2 million of income taxes owed by [d]efendant Brodnik.”

According to the indictment, Brodnik and Kritt allegedly used several “fictitious entities” including Kritt’s Nevada-based Professional Leasing Services, Inc., along with other employee-leasing companies including Pixley Ltd., of Dublin. Ireland; IALB International Advisory Services Ltd.,(employee-leasing) of Hungary and Cyprus; Rosmol Commercial Co., Ltd., of Cyprus; Blenheim Fiduciary Group, Ltd., of Guernsey, the Channel Islands (financial services); and Ruritania Ltd., also of the Channel Islands.
Federal prosecutors allege that Brodnik and Kritt,“routed millions of untaxed dollars earned by Brodnik through his Bluefield medical practice into the accounts of PLS, then Pixley, IALB and Rosmol and ultimately into the Ruritania 90 account,” according to the indictment. The indictment also alleges that Brodnik and Kritt used London and Capital Group, PLC., to provide financial advice; and Associated Enterprises Ltd., formed under the laws of the Isle of Man “to repatriate approximately $1 million from (Brodnik’s) Ruritania 90 account.”
Federal prosecutors allege in the indictment that Brodnik and Kritt “secrete” Brodnik’s untaxed income in offshore accounts to obstruct the IRS in its efforts to collect taxes. The government also alleges in the indictment that Brodnik “secreted funds through the guise and pretense of bogus loans,” from AEL,“to build a mansion in Bluefield, Va.,” according to the indictment.
The indictment alleges that Brodnik filed false income tax returns through the period of the conspiracy and that Kritt transferred funds into Brodnik’s offshore accounts. In October of 2008, the government alleges that Brodnik filed an amended U.S. Individual Income Tax Return for 2007, Form 1040X,“which stated that he has in excess of $5.5 million in offshore accounts.”
According to the indictment, Brodnik described the funds as “Deferrals and Related Earnings ... from Foreign Employer’s Nonqualified Deferred Compensation Plan,” but federal prosecutors claim they the money was “untaxed income he earned and secreted in offshore accounts.” The government alleges that the defendants traveled to London, UK in 1999, 2001 and 2004, to meet with financial advisors concerning the Ruritania 90 funds.
Counts 2-7, provide additional information about the returns that the defendants filed during the period of the alleged conspiracy. Assistant U.S. Attorney L. Anna Forbes of the Southern District of West Virginia and Joseph M. Giannullo, trial attorney, United States Department of Justice Tax Division, jointly presented the case to the grand jury.
If convicted, both defendants could receive maximum sentences of 35 years in federal prison each.

His partner in that practice went to jail for I believe the same kind of charges about 11 years ago. They say the highest form of learning is from others mistakes!

Dr. Brodnik came to the area 10 years ago to open the practice. He never had a partner. You may want to check your facts...

Considering BRMC continues to have him as their Chief of Medicine means a lot. He just got through with a messy divorce and if you read the indictment papers in Beckley, she led the charge in helping the IRS. Problem is, he paid the money back last year so this should be a non-issue.

Actually, I have my facts very straight. I was a paient of his partner, just as he was starting in the practice with him. I saw him (Brodnick) only once as a patient because I delivered shortly after that and Brodnick did not deliver me because they couldn't get in touch with him!

PS... I delivered my baby boy 12 years ago in May

Of course it was the ex-wife's fault!
By the way, "chiefs" get rotated through, it doesn't really mean he's great or anything, just his turn!

Just leave him alone. Let him pay his back taxes and let it go at that just as they have for Obama's appointees.

It really is sad that these "Professionals" who suddenly make big money get so carried away with their greed. Not so long ago Bluefield was also aghast at Dr. David Tolliver for his tax evasion schemes, and only punished with a slap on the wrist. The fact is, it's a slap in the face to the rest of us just how much money some of them are getting paid to rip off the system at our continual rising expense! I simply think if they are allowed to continue practicing after such unethical behavior, we, the patients, should dump them and no longer feed the problems that broke the system, as well as broke our own pockets. That's my pro-active plan of action in cases like this. What's YOURS?

I think it would be a crime in it's self to put a wonderful Dr. in prison! I know he's done wrong by not paying his taxes BUT he'll be made to paid it back and then some. He has NEVER hurt anyone and in fact, I wonder if ANYONE can count how many wonderful little blessings this man has help bring into this world. HE is caring and an awesome Dr. I would go to him and would tell anyone to that they will be very pleased to have him as a doctor.

I am related to Doctor Brodnik in ways I'm not saying. He has done nothing wrong. Its rediculous if he was trying to evade taxes why did he already pay the 2.2 Million Dollars in tax. They are basically saying he paid for the candy bar but, might of been thinking about stealing it. This is rediculous that such a loyal and good hearted Doctor is getting treated the way he his. I think he is the best doctor around and shouldn't have to go through with all of this.

I agree that he is one of the BEST doctors around. I have seen him for over 10 years and he is the sole reason I was able to have my 2 sons. He took time out of his personal life to perform fertility treatments ON THE WEEKEND so I could conceive! My prayers are with your family as it would be a crime to put such a wonderful doctor behind bars.

Whether he's a good dr. or not, he should be responsible for his actions.

I think Dr. Brodnik is getting everything he deserves! He owes me money as well and his office manager refuses to return my calls and ignores my letters. So, I hope the court issues out the highest penalty.
