HAMDEN – The owner of Ray and Mike’s deli, one of the most popular spots for Quinnipiac students and Hamden residents, was sentenced to prison on Tuesday for tax evasion.

Raymond George, 53, was sentenced to nine months in prison, which will be followed by a year of supervised release after his prison sentence concludes. He was also ordered to pay a $5,000 fine.

George pleaded guilty to one charge of tax evasion back in May after failing to deposit all cash receipts into his bank account in 2012 and 2013. He used some of the money to fill the ATM machine located inside the store.

George will be ordered to begin his prison sentence on March 17, 2020.
