Stephen Baldwin admits he failed to pay NY taxes

Posted:
NEW CITY, N.Y. (AP) -

Stephen Baldwin has admitted in court that he failed to pay New York state income taxes for three years.

The actor agreed Friday to pay $400,000 in back taxes, interest and penalties. The judge says $100,000 of that already has been paid.

Baldwin pleaded guilty to a charge of repeated failure to file income taxes.

The judge says that if Baldwin pays back the rest of the money within a year, the charge will be taken off his record. If not, he'll be sentenced to five year's probation.

Baldwin went to court between appearances on "All-Star Celebrity Apprentice." He's the youngest of the four acting Baldwin brothers.

He says he received bad advice from lawyers and accountants.
