Feeley learned from Ms. Grega and Ms. Carapico that Mr. Marzullo
was still taking payments from the accounts payable account, she
contacted Mr. Marzullo, who then terminated the arrangement. A
Form 1099 reporting payments Mr. Marzullo received from the account
was issued for 1989.
Mr. Marzullo knew that the payments from the accounts payable
account were taxable, and he deliberately did not have the omitted
income included in the payroll account and on his Form W-2.
Criminal charges were filed against Mr. Marzullo in 1992, and he
pleaded guilty to tax evasion for 1987 in the U.S. District Court
for the District of Maryland.

directed the video, and supervised every aspect of its preparation.
