An Eagan man has been sentenced to two years in prison for harboring illegal aliens so they could work in his siding business.
U.S. District Judge Joan N. Ericksen on Wednesday sentenced 63-year-old Joo Ok Kim on one count of harboring and concealing aliens.
Kim pleaded guilty in August 2010. In his plea agreement, he admitted that from November 2008 through March 2009 he kept five Mexican nationals in his basement.
Kim also admitted transporting the five men to job sites in his truck. Authorities discovered the men when they responded to a disturbance call at Kim's home.
