Defense wants Agriprocessors evidence excluded

Posted:

POSTVILLE (KWWL) - An attorney for Agriprocessors says warrants used in last year's raid are invalid, so evidence gathered from it should be excluded.

An attorney for the Postville kosher plant filed a motion claiming the immigration raid violated the rights of the workers arrested.  The defense all hispanic workers were detained without reasonable suspicion that they were in the country illegally. They also argue, warrants didn't properly identify suspects or provide probable cause.

Since the raid, Agriprocessors has filed for bankruptcy protection. The company and some managers face civil and criminal charges.
