Pennsylvania attorney John P. Karoly Jr. pleaded guilty Monday to charges of dodging $1.9 million in federal taxes by hiding more than $5 million in income. In return, prosecutors agreed to drop all charges relating to an alleged fraud scheme in which Karoly was accused of fabricating wills after his brother and sister-in-law died in a plane crash. The deal came on the day that jury selection was set to begin in the first of two trials.
