Guilty plea expected in trial over exported Russian chicken
Published: April 2,2013
PASCAGOULA — Court records say a man is expected to plead guilty in an alleged conspiracy to falsify the temperatures of chicken exported from Mississippi to Russia.
The April 2012 indictment says Gerald Miller, Patrick McLain and Terry White arranged the export of chicken that did not meet temperature requirements under a trade agreement with Russia.
White was scheduled to plead guilty yesterday in U.S. District Court in Gulfport.
The judge agreed with the other defendant’s lawyers to postpone their trial, which also had been scheduled for today. The trial is now scheduled for June.
The indictment says chicken was removed from freezers in 2009 before reaching approved temperatures to increase production.
The men worked at Gulf Coast Cold Storage in Pascagoula.
