November 23, 2010

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. Prosecutors said the defendants' companies, Hi-Tech Trucking Inc. and SeaLands Food, employed between six and 24 illegal aliens at various times from 2006 through 2009.

Hi-Tech Trucking was sentenced to three years probation for conspiring to hire illegal aliens and will forfeit about $1.2 million.
