No jail for farmers who hired illegal immigrants
BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) — A couple who admit hiring illegal immigrants for years at their Michigan dairy farm have been sentenced to probation.
John and Anja Verhaar could have been sent to jail. The sentences ordered Tuesday in federal court in Bay City will allow them to return to their 5,000-cow dairy farm in the Thumb near Bad Axe.
