This must happen often but we don't hear about it in the news much.
On May 25, a former senior customs inspector, Robert Butman, pleaded guilty to threatening to deport an illegal immigrant if he didn't get $10,000.
According to the Chicago Tribune, a business owner agreed to pay the $10,000 to deport an employee who had sued the owner for sexual harassment.
Butman could get more than 7 years in prison for this. Sentencing is July 27.
We'll see if that'll make the papers.
It's unfortunate that illegal immigrants get taken advantage of by jerks like Butman.
