Company Charged with Harboring Illegal Aliens

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA – United States Attorney Peter G. Strasser announced that AA STUCCO AND MASONRY, LLC., a company that does business within the Eastern District of Louisiana, was charged yesterday in a one-count bill of information with harboring two illegal aliens, in violation of Title 8, United States Code, Section 1324(a)(1)(A)(iii).

If convicted of the felony, the company faces up to 5 years of probation, a fine of $500,000, and a $400 special assessment fee.

U.S. Attorney Strasser reiterated that a Bill of Information is merely a charge and that the guilt of the defendant must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
