The Country Club bust

Posted By on Fri, Sep 8, 2006 at 4:23 PM

Quick work was made today in federal court of the 11 Country Club of Little Rock employees arrested recently for having fraudulent working papers.

In a plea bargain, all pleaded to a count of obtaining a fraudulent Social Security number and sentenced to time served, plus three years of probation. (If they're found in the U.S. during that time, they'll be in violation.) They're scheduled to be deported Monday, though work continues to see if they can be allowed voluntary passage back to their homes.

Many of them were long-term employees and leave families who face difficult decisions on maintaining lives in Little Rock -- including school for children.
