GA man sentenced for transporting illegal immigrants

24 year-old Joe Jones, Jr., of Georgia, was sentenced  to two years and three months in federal prison, followed by two years of supervised release for transporting illegal immigrants across the United States.

In June of 2018, Jones was being paid to drive a minivan full of illegal immigrants from Louisiana to Georgia.

On his way through Mississippi, a Mississippi Highway Patrol Officer stopped the van and found 10 illegal immigrants inside, four of whom were deported from the United States during the past few years.

U.S. Attorney Mike Hurst commended the work of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Mississippi Highway Patrol in their investigation of this case.
