On July 14, 2015, the U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. Attorney’s Office, announced that a corporation domiciled in Pennsylvania pled guilty to a one-count Bill of Information charging the company with harboring unauthorized immigrants.

The U.S. District Judge sentenced the company to three years of probation and ordered that the company forfeit over $1 million in illegal proceeds that it obtained as a result of employing the unauthorized workers. The company was also ordered to comply with future immigration inspections and to provide training to its managers and employees with hiring authority about compliance with immigration laws.
