BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — The U.S. Border Patrol says a Honduran man is going to prison for 10 months after being convicted on charges he brought a prostitute to workers on dairy farms in Vermont and New York.
Jose Lorenzo Cardona-Paguada, (Ho-zay Lo-REN-zo Kar-DOE-nuh PAH-wah-da) was sentenced earlier this month.
He reached a plea deal with prosecutors earlier this year.
Court documents say Cardona and a Mexican woman, both illegal immigrants, were spotted by a Border Patrol agent last January by the side of the road in Richford.
Investigators found documents in the vehicle indicating the woman had been acting as a prostitute with workers at farms in Vermont and New York. Many dairy farms in the region use Hispanic workers.
