38 year old Mark Ellis admitted in federal court on Wednesday to making a fraudulent claim to the U.S. and to filing a false lein against a federal employee.

 

He apparently filed a false federal tax return and obtained a 327-thousand dollar refund based on that false return.

 

He also admitted he filed a false lein against the federal law enforcement officer investigating the false tax return to intimidate him.

 

Sentencing is set for January.

 

The maximum penalty for the two crimes is ten years in prison and a half million dollars in fines.
