ABERDEEN — An attorney wants to delay the trial of a man charged with money laundering and harboring illegal immigrants.
James Massey Jr. and A-1 Homes, LLC are accused of trying to conceal payments to an illegal immigrant who worked for the company. The Mississippi Secretary of State’s office shows the company with a Horn Lake address.
The trial is scheduled to begin March 18 in U.S. District Court in Aberdeen. Court records say the company employed the illegal immigrant from 2002 to 2011.
Massey is accused of writing checks to the man, who then allegedly endorsed them and returned them to Massey for cash.
Massey’s attorney had no comment on the charges against his client.
