A Jacksonville gentleman's club owner has been indicted on a charge of tax evasion.

If convicted on all counts, Fred Bedran, 61, faces up to three years in federal prison and a $100,000 fine.

According to the indictment, Bedran is the owner and operator of J.R. Cocktails Inc.

From 2007 through 2010, Bedran underreported his personal income and the gross receipts/sales being generated from his business to avoid paying the full amount of his personal and corporate income taxes, according to the indictment.
