Trial begins over handling of Russian poultry exports
Published: June 5,2013
PASCAGOULA — The trial has begun for two men charged with falsifying temperatures of poultry exported from Pascagoula to Russia.
Court records say a jury was seated yesterday in U.S. District Court in Gulfport for 39-year-old Gerald Miller of Gautier and 55-year-old Patrick McClain of Pascagoula.
A third man, 38-year-old Terry White of Ocean Springs, has already pleaded guilty in the case.
They’re accused of conspiring to increase productivity by instructing workers to remove poultry from blast freezers before the poultry reached the required temperature in 2009.
They’re charged with circumventing a trade agreement while working for Gulf Coast Cold Storage at the Port of Pascagoula.
The business is located at the Port of Pascagoula.
