Louis Mahar is facing two counts of identity theft. He is accused of forging his then-wife’s signature on an amended tax return. Police say he kept the return without her knowledge.
Mahar is the former co-owner of ‘Mahar Brothers Construction’.
His trial begins Thursday morning. It’s being prosecuted by Douglas County officials because of a personal connection between a Jackson County official and the case.
