Ronald Isley's tax affairs have landed him in the soup - his trial has ended with him found guilty of five counts of tax evasion and one of "wilful failure" to file a tax return. Isley's activities included insisting on being paid cash for millions of dollars worth of fees, putting property in other people's names and cashing royalty cheques intended for his dead brother. It's possible he also had a window cleaning round on the side.

He'll be back in court for sentecning in January, although he's probably going to spend the next couple of months trying to transfer the conviction into his ex-wife's name.
