Ex-Tyson Man Admits Smuggling Workers

January 08, 2002|From Staff and Wire Reports

A former Tyson Foods employee pleaded guilty to conspiracy, admitting in a Chattanooga court that he smuggled illegal immigrants into the country to work for the poultry giant and provided them with fraudulent identification.

Amador Anchondo-Rascon could face five years in prison, a $250,000 fine and forfeiture of any gains from the alleged conspiracy, which prosecutors say started in 1994.

U.S. Atty. John MacCoon declined to say if the 43-year-old native of Mexico would testify against six Tyson executives, including a vice president, indicted last month.
