Stew Leonard, Sr, 83, founder of of the famous Stew Leonard's grocery store empire, faces charges in a boating death.

In past news, in 1993, he got a 52-month sentence for an elaborate tax fraud scheme where he set up a dummy cash register on Sundays and funneled the proceeds to the Caymans. (He took the fall to cover for his son Stew, Jr.).

A few years after that Stew Leonard's was fined for deliberately cheating customers by short-weighting products.
