H. Ty Warner
Federal prosecutors said on Feb. 13 that they are appealing a sentence for the billionaire Beanie Babies creator that did not include prison time. Warner pleaded guilty last year to one count of tax evasion for hiding $25 million in income in secret Swiss bank accounts.
A federal judge sentenced Warner on Jan. 14 to two years of probation. He could have been sentenced to up to five years in prison.
