Swift Defendants Charged with Multiple Felonies

We have new details on the Cactus Swift detainees now indicted.

Each of the  53 defendants is charged in a separate felony criminal indictment, most face multiple counts. All of them are charged with false representation of a social security number. The penalty for that is up to five years in prison and fines of 250- thousand dollars per count.

Seven of the defendants are also charged with illegally returning to the U.S. after being previously deported.

The U.S. Attorney prosecuting the detainees tells us if they're convicted, they will first serve their sentences here before being deported to their home countries
