ROCHESTER, N.Y.-U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr. announced today that Sara Carbajal, 42, of Sodus, NY, who was convicted of submitting a false and fraudulent written statement, was sentenced to one year probation by U.S. District Judge Elizabeth A.Wolford.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Tiffany H. Lee, who handled the case, stated that Carbajal managed Carbajal Labor. In that role, the defendant filed a false Form I-9 for employment eligibility verification. On the form, Carbajal affirmed under penalty of perjury that the contents were true and accurate when she knew that the individual whose information she was verifying was present illegally in the United States and not eligible for employment.

The sentencing is the culmination of an investigation by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations, under direction of Acting Special Agent in Charge J. Michael Kennedy.
