Judge delays trial of couple accused of using illegal immigrants
Published: March 8,2012
RIDGELAND — A federal judge has pushed back until May the trial of a couple charged with knowingly using illegal immigrants at their irrigation company in central Mississippi.
The trial had been scheduled for April in U.S. District Court in Jackson, but has been postponed until May 21.
A federal indictment says Paul and Barbara Love used illegal immigrants as far back as 2003 at Love Irrigation Inc. based in Ridgeland.
The indictment says the Loves were told by immigration officials in 2008 that some of their employees were illegal immigrants. They allegedly continued using the illegal workers, but designated them as contract laborers, paid them in cash and picked them up from off-site locations.
They pleaded not guilty Nov. 3.
