2yrs+3mo. in fed prison for MI farm woman who helped undocumented dairy workers

The Detroit Free Press ran the verdict on November 16. Didn’t get too much press then.

Her crimes?

Stewart helped workers buy groceries, cash at least $1.8 million in checks and send money to Mexico. She also assisted them in getting bogus identity documents. She pleaded guilty to conspiracy in July.

In her signed plea agreement, Stewart also admitted that she alerted farm operators when she believed federal agents were nearby so that they could conceal workers from getting caught.
