Marco Glisson, 59, a former auto worker who once lived in Las Vegas, was ordered into federal custody following his sentencing earlier this week to begin his prison term, Nevada U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden said Friday. Glisson, who pleaded guilty in January to one count of tax evasion and one count of conspiracy to sell and offer unregistered securities, was charged with hiding more than $664,000 in income from the IRS for the tax years 2006 and 2007. The money was from the sale of $1.8 million in unregistered stock in CMKM Diamonds, a Las Vegas-based company investigated by federal authorities on several fronts. [LVRJ]
