A world-renowned veterinarian and former UC Davis professor will serve time behind bars for tax evasion, after working at the Olympics this summer in Tokyo.

Equine specialist Jack Ray Snyder was sentenced yesterday to six months in federal prison, followed by six months of home detention, after pleading guilty to more than $200,000 in unreported income from the 2011 tax year. The five-time Olympic veterinarian, known from Truckee to San Diego to Florida and beyond for his work, is set to report to prison on August 17th, just nine days after the conclusion of the Tokyo Olympic games.
