Three former employees of the tax preparer Jackson Hewitt have been sentenced to more than one year in prison for submitting false tax returns.

Forty-year-old Dennis Lee Best of New Bern was sentenced to 41 months in prison. Forty-one-year-old Karen Renay Raynor of Vanceboro was sentenced to 24 months in prison. And 40-year-old Linda Davis Sutton of Vanceboro was sentenced to 12 months and one day in prison.
