In addition, Prasad is accused of tax evasion and conspiring to help a co-conspirator evade their taxes," reports San Francisco's KPIX news.
The report further stated that "Prasad worked for Apple between December 2008 and December 2018 and was a buyer in the Cupertino-based company’s Global Service Supply Chain.
