A second Zimbabwe man accused in an Ohio-based tax fraud case that prosecutors say netted up to $7 million has changed his plea to guilty.
Tawanda Marimbire, 23, pleaded guilty in federal court on Monday to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud. Other charges were dropped in exchange for his cooperation. The 23-year-old faces up to 20 years in prison.
Another defendant in the case pleaded guilty last month to one count of engaging in monetary transactions.
Five other men charged in the case, mostly from Zimbabwe, are considered fugitives.
Authorities say the seven men ran a tax preparation business in Cincinnati and used the identities of at least 658 people to file false returns, collecting between $2.4 million and $7 million.
