Packing Plant Owner Sentenced to Federal Prison


James Brantley formerly the owner of a ramshackle packing plant in Bean Station, TN was sentenced to 18 months in prison and 3 years probation following release.  The case arises from an ICE raid that resulted in the arrest of 100 undocumented workers.  Brantley a scofflaw pleaded guilty to tax evasion, wire fraud and other Federal offenses.  In August 2018, the Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health Administration audited the Bean Station plant trading as Southeastern Provisions LLC and cited the company with 27 violations relating to inadequate safety training, exposure to hazardous chemicals and lack of eye and face protection for workers.
