Former executive sentenced today for illegal workers


Wednesday, former Howard Industries executive Jose Humberto Gonzalez, who pleaded guilty in December to one count of conspiracy in the nation’s largest workplace raid on illegal immigrants, will learn his sentence.

In August 2008, authorities arrested more than 600 people in a raid of the electrical transformer plant. Several of the illegal immigrants were convicted of identity theft and deported.

Gonzalez faces up to five years in jail. He will be sentenced later today in U.S. District Court in Hattiesburg.
