Former Sandusky attorney, Karl Rominger, owes $308K in federal tax liens

More trouble for embattled attorney Karl Rominger.  CBS 21 news was the first to report Monday afternoon that he allegedly owes hundreds of thousands of dollars in tax liens. 

"I was shocked. I was very disappointed," said Michelle Sommer.  Sommer and her client, Ed Gorton, are frustrated, to say the least.  They recently learned the $60,000 that Carlisle Attorney Karl Rominger owes them is gone.  The money was part of a divorce settlement, where Rominger represented Gorton’s wife.  

Now, Jerry Sandusky’s former attorney is under investigation for "misappropriation of client funds.”

"My client is so frustrated. Once a divorce is final, that is your opportunity to move on with your life and unfortunately he doesn't have those funds to do that,” said Sommer.

Sommer fears her client may never get his money, and here’s why.  CBS 21 obtained documents today that show Rominger has $308,000 just in unpaid federal tax liens.  The liens date back to 2011.  One alone is for more than $125,000.

But it’s not just the federal tax liens that are adding up for Rominger.  County records show, since 2000, he has had about two dozen other liens filed against him.

CBS 21 is still rooting through those documents.  But in the meantime, Cumberland County DA David Freed released this statement:  “We have handled many significant theft investigations in the last few years.  Such investigations are document driven and, done correctly, require complex forensic accounting. We are currently engaged in that process.”

We reached out to Karl Rominger for comment, but never received one. Former Sandusky attorney, Karl Rominger, owes $308K in federal tax liens
