Federal prosecutors say 77-year-old William Bogan Sr. was sentenced Monday to six months in prison and six months home confinement with electronic monitoring, while 47-year-old Sharon Bogan received two years probation.

Both had pleaded guilty to income tax evasion charges last April.

The Bogans own and operate several party fishing and river-cruising boats based out of Brielle and Point Pleasant as part of Bogan's Deep Sea Fishing Center.

They admitted keeping a large portion of their business income for personal use and not reporting the money on their personal income tax returns from 2004 through 2009.
