Human-Smuggling Organization Leader Gets 7 Years

Human-Smuggling Organization Leader Gets 7 Years

In Phoenix, police say that the leader of a human-smuggling operation was sentenced with seven years imprisonment last week. Attorney General Terry Goddard announced that 28 year old Rosalio Palacios, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, was sentenced on Friday.

In addition to having to serve time in prison, Palacios was also ordered to pay a $46,000 fine. Palacios pled guilty to felony charges of: participating in a criminal syndicate, illegal control of an enterprise, human smuggling, illegal use of a wire/electronic communication, and fraudulent schemes and practices.

According to reports, Palacios was the ring leader of a crime ring that engaged in human smuggling. The organization managed to smuggle thousands of illegal immigrants into Phoenix from Mexico. The immigrants were then sent to drop houses for $1,800 per person.
