GULFPORT — A sentencing hearing is scheduled for Aug. 19 for a man who pleaded guilty in an alleged conspiracy to falsify the temperatures of chicken exported from Mississippi to Russia.
An April 2012 indictment says Terry White and two others arranged the export of chicken that did not meet temperature requirements under a trade agreement with Russia.
The men worked at Gulf Coast Cold Storage in Pascagoula.
White pleaded guilty in May in U.S. District Court in Gulfport.
Gerald Miller and Patrick McLain were acquitted in the case.
The indictment had said chicken was removed from freezers in 2009 before reaching approved temperatures to increase production.
