Former kickboxing champion Alexio found guilty of tax fraud

  • STAR-ADVERTISER / FEB. 5, 1992

    Dennis Alexio flashes a shaka sign to fans after knocking out Clement Salles in the fifth round of a match at the Blaisdell Arena.

A federal jury deliberated for less than three hours before finding former world kickboxing champion Dennis Alexio guilty today of multiple counts of theft, money laundering, tax and wire fraud.

The charges stem from Alexio filing false tax returns for himself and others, including his wife, then taking steps to prevent the Internal Revenue Service from reclaiming the fraudulent tax refunds.

He is scheduled to face sentencing in May.

Alexio, 56, is also scheduled to stand trial in federal court in March for another case in which he is accused purchasing gold bars and silver coins using false transaction documents.
