CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Two staffing agency executives have pleaded guilty to federal employment tax evasion charges.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin says 60-year-old Daniel Hovis and 63-year-old Janice Hensley each pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court in Charleston to failure to pay trust fund taxes.

Hovis is president of Career Search One Inc. Hensley is its vice president.

Goodwin says the pair failed to pay more than $600,000 in employment taxes owed to the IRS.

Career Search One specialized in providing employees to client businesses for a fee. The corporation had primary bookkeeping offices in Charleston and Wheeling. Hovis and Hensley both worked out of the Charleston location.

They face up to five years in prison and $250,000 fines apiece. Sentencing is set for Sept. 4.
