Not wanting to be one of "the little people" who pay taxes, billionaire Leona Helmsley and her husband withheld millions in tax revenue. She was sentenced to almost two years in prison along with a $7 million fee in 1990. Rumor indicates that she had money smuggled into prison for the purpose of paying an inmate to be her servant.
