Gaskins is charged with seven counts of structuring and attempting to structure transactions to avoid reporting the money to authorities. A judge issued a warrant for his arrest Thursday.
IRS rules specify that cash transaction over $10,000 be reported. According to accounting records, all of Gaskins' deposits were just under $10,000.
Some of Gaskins' most notable cases include the defense of Chapel Hill teenager Adam Sapikowski, who was convicted in 2005 of killing his parents and Kwame Mays, a man who was convicted of killing Raleigh police officer Paul Hale.
