The video game developer behind "Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting," "Alvin and the Chipmunks" and "Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005" has been sentenced to six months in jail for tax evasion.
Third District Judge Robin Reese on Monday sentenced David M. Rushton, 55, of South Jordan, on charges of tax fraud and racketeering. The judge also ordered Rushton to pay $516,816 in restitution.
Rushton started the video game development company Fooptube LLC in 2005 and employed as many as 211 employees, according to the Utah Attorney General's Office, which prosecuted the case. The company, also known as Sensory Sweep Studio, developed games such as "Justice League Heroes," "Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects" and "Jackass: The Game."
