Fresen pleaded guilty in April to the single charge, which involved failing to report about $270,000 in income. The jail term will be broken into four chunks of 15 days each within the one year of probation, according to court records.

The sentence was imposed Friday, though his lawyers were seeking no jail time. 

Defense attorney Jeff Neiman says in court papers Fresen has repaid his back taxes. 

Fresen, a Republican, represented a Miami-area district in the state House from 2008 to 2016. 

Court records show he didn't file tax returns for any of those years but pleaded guilty to 2011 only.
