ND Man Sentenced in Illegal Workers Case

Posted: Updated:

A judge says a Fargo construction company owner must serve prison time for employing and housing illegal workers. 

Twenty-nine-year-old Garrett Setterholm pleaded guilty in January to harboring six or more workers who were not in the United States legally.

Federal authorities say Setterholm employed the workers at his roofing company in the summer of 2011. 

As part of their employment, Setterholm allegedly provided the workers with apartments and transportation to and from the work sites. 

U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson sentenced Setterholm to three months in prison, to be followed by six months of home confinement. Setterholm was ordered to forfeit $80,000.
