CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) -- A Delaware County dairy cattle farmer has pleaded guilty in federal court in Cedar Rapids to one count of harboring, encouraging and inducing someone living in the U.S. illegally.
According to a press release from U.S. Attorney Kevin W. Techau, 47-year-old Michael Thomas Millenkamp of rural Earlville was convicted Wednesday for employing several people residing in the U.S. unlawfully between 2007 and 2011.
The release says some of the employees were allowed to live at one or more of the farms owned by Millenkamp.
As part of his plea agreement, Millenkamp is required to engage in ongoing compliance with employment eligibility verification laws, pay a total financial sanction of $250,000 and make at least two public presentations to statewide farm groups about his case.
