    The former manager of the Spruce Head Fisherman's Cooperative pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to one count of tax evasion and one count of illegally selling lobsters and was sentenced to serve 8 months in Federal prison April 15. Robert Thompson, 53, now of Rockwood, was convicted of evading income tax payments of about $114,000 from 2004 to 2011.
