A Ventura man pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles on Monday to a charge of falsifying his tax return to avoid paying more than $8,000 in taxes, federal prosecutors said. Arnold D. Butler, 50, who was a partner in a Bakersfield oil and gas company, admitted misreporting his income by $29,700 in 1989, Assistant U.S. Atty. Warrington Parker said. The additional tax on that income amounted to $8,788, Parker said.
