DENVER (AP) -- The father of Colorado's Taxpayer's Bill of Rights is awaiting word on whether he'll go prison after being convicted of evading taxes.

Douglas Bruce was to be sentenced Monday afternoon for felony charges including evading state taxes, filing a false return and failing to file a tax return between 2005 and 2010.

He faces up to 12 years in prison

Bruce was convicted of hiding millions of dollars in a sham charity prosecutors said he set up to avoid taxes.

Bruce, a former state lawmaker, said state officials went after him for promoting smaller government.
