Victor resident, 5LINX co-owner sentenced in fraud case

The third and final former owner of 5LINX was sentenced Wednesday for his role in a multi-million dollar marketing scheme.

Jason Guck, 43, of Victor was convicted of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and filing a false tax return.

According to federal prosecutors, in 2001, Guck, along with Craig Jerabeck and Jeb Tyler, started 5LINX Enterprise, Inc., based in Henrietta.

Prosecutors say in June and July of 2006, all three executives received more than $2.3 million from a Florida company that they didn't report to 5LINX investors, violating a shareholder agreement.



In addition, Guck provided false information on tax returns as well as failed to file returns from 2012 to 2015 resulting in a tax loss of $778,718.

Guck will now spend the next seven months in prison.

Jerabeck and Tyler were previously convicted and sentenced to serve 14 months in prison. Prosecutors also said Jerabeck provided false information on his personal tax returns in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2015.
