    Federal authorities say an inmate serving a 10-year prison sentence has pleaded guilty to committing tax fraud while behind bars.
    Officials say David Marrero filed various false documents to the Internal Revenue Service and claimed a tax return of over $2.7 million. Authorities say Marrero fraudulently claimed that several companies withheld federal taxes from him. Officials say Marrero used other people's financial documents without their knowledge to file the fraudulent claims.
