Company execs building border fence were convicted of hiring illegal immigrants

Sometimes, the news just writes itself. From the Golden State Fence Company's press release:

Golden State Fence Company, one of the nation's leading fence design and installation companies, announced today that a San Diego Court sentenced Mel Kay, the Company's President, and Mike McLaughlin, another senior executive, to serve only three years probation and no time in prison. In addition to probation, both men were sentenced to a period of home detention, 1,040 hours of community service and to pay fines of $200,000 and $100,000 respectively for the hiring of undocumented workers.



Doesn't even need a comment. A snicker suffices.

Don't feel bad, Ron. JR pointed out to me that I had a word misspelled (actually a typo)in my header too. :-(
