Couple Supplying Labor for Mar-Jac Plant Found Guilty of Conspiracy


On Wednesday, October 13th a federal jury convicted Delvin Escalante and Crystal Escalante, residents of Haleyville, AL. of a series of crimes arising from a Department of Homeland Security raid on a Jasper, AL. Mar-Jac plant. 


The Escalante's were found guilty of conspiracy to transport illegal aliens, money laundering and related charges.  According to court records, the Escalante's supplied Mar-Jac with undocumented contract labor using false identities.  Over a three-year period, the defendants apparently earned more than $16 million.


The Escalante’s face up to 10 years in prison on the illegal aliens charge and considerably longer for money laundering. In addition to incarceration and fines, the Government will seize assets including property and vehicles.
