Jury acquits W.Va. coal operator, son of tax charges stemming from alleged coal check scheme

A West Virginia coal operator and his son have been acquitted of federal charges stemming from an alleged check cashing scheme.

Court documents show that a federal jury in Abingdon found David A. Cline and his son, Joshua Cline, not guilty of the charges last week.

David Cline owns Rock N Roll Coal Company in McDowell County, W.Va. He was charged with causing the structuring of currency transactions to avoid reporting requirements and conspiracy.

Joshua Cline was charged with structuring, making false statements under oath and conspiracy.

They were among five people indicted in October 2012 in an alleged check cashing scheme that prosecutors say involved kickbacks and fraudulent currency transactions.

David Cline's attorney, Ben Bailey, says his client and Joshua Cline have maintained their innocence and are relieved by the verdict.
