    TRENTON – A millionaire UPS executive was given probation Friday for failing to pay thousands of dollars in taxes eight years ago.

    Steven Turner, 63, of New Hope, Pa., was given three years of probation and ordered to pay $345,000 in restitution, Mercer County prosecutors said Friday.

    The decision came nearly three months after Turner was found guilty of third-degree failure to pay income taxes for neglecting to pay nearly $248,000 in 2008, prosecutors have said.

    That year, Turner had worked as a controller for UPS and made $2.2 million. Prosecutors have said he lived in a $1 million house at the time.

    His case caught the attention of the New Jersey Division of Taxation, which launched an investigation and indicted Turner on Oct. 30, 2013.

    The sentence Friday comes with a caveat – if Turner does not pay the $345,000 he owes in restitution by the time his probation is through, he will have to spend a year in jail, prosecutors said.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    We had a driver (since retired) who spent the majority of a summer many years ago in jail for failure to file his taxes (tax evasion). He came back and was allowed to retire rather than resign.

    Our comptroller didn't know he had to file his taxes?
