A manager of two suburban Richmond companies that delivered seafood to Asian restaurants and markets in the mid-Atlantic has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for hiring and harboring illegal aliens.
The U.S. attorney's office says 44-year-old Bao Ping Wang of
Glen Allen was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty in September.
Another manager, 45-year-old Trang Lu of Glen Allen, was sentenced to two years probation after pleading guilty to failing to report a felony.
