The tax fraud case against former Baltimore City Police Commissioner Darryl De Sousa has been linked to the corrupt Gun Trace Task Force.

Prosecutors who oversaw the GTTF case said the police officers involved in the scandal encouraged Baltimore’s ex-commissioner’s tax fraud.

De Sousa’s attorney said co-workers told him how he could save money on taxes but adds De Sousa didn’t understand what he was doing.

De Sousa also admitted to falsely claiming allowances on a past W-4 form and false tax deductions on filings from 2008 to 2012.

He faces one year in prison for his tax evasion charges.
