St. Louis Firm Must Pay $150,000 over Illegal Aliens

ST. LOUIS (AP) – A St. Louis supply company has been placed on probation for one year and must forfeit $150,000 and a 2011 Toyota Highlander, as penalties for employing illegal aliens.

J&J Industrial Supply Inc. pleaded guilty in October to intentionally hiring more than 10 illegal aliens. Sentencing was Tuesday in U.S. District Court in St. Louis.

The company, which does business as Industrial Wiping Cloths & Supplies, resells used clothing in bulk quantities to overseas buyers, and produces cleaning rags for domestic customers.
