Early tax refund fraud figure sentenced in Tampa

TAMPA — A man whose name was linked early on to tax refund fraud in the Tampa Bay area was ordered to prison Thursday for nine years and eight months.

Marterrance Q. Holloway, 33, will also forfeit two 2010 Chevrolet Camaros, a 2011 Dodge Charger, a 2005 Dodge Charger, a motor scooter, an iPad, assorted jewelry and $779 in cash. The court entered a judgment against him for $238,573.

Holloway and codefendant Maurice "Thirst" Larry were filing false tax claims using dead people's identities in a hotel room in September 2010 when the scam was broken up by Tampa police.

Larry has already been sentenced in that case and another, with both sentences running concurrently, sending him to prison for 14 years and 6 months.

    Buckle up for Baby Driver, a movie so full throttle cool that you want to fist bump the screen. Style is the substance of Edgar Wright's inventive heist flick, a fresh, masterful synching of music and getaway mayhem, as if La La Land's traffic jam was moving, armed and dangerous.
