    Bakery owner pleads guilty to hiring illegal immigrants

    An Otay Mesa business owner has agreed to forfeit $800,000 after pleading guilty Tuesday to knowingly hiring illegal immigrants and leading an elaborate scheme to conceal the practice from authorities.

    S & S Bakery owner Jesse Fadick, 64, also would serve five years of probation under a plea agreement finalized in San Diego federal court. Fadick acknowledged that he knowingly hired at least 10 unauthorized workers at the wholesale bakery, which is located in an industrial zone close to the U.S.-Mexico border.

    The charges against Fadick could have carried a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a fine of more than $1 million. Fadick’s attorney, Howard Frank, said the plea agreement was fair given that Fadick paid his employees at least minimum wage and overtime and provided them with worker’s compensation insurance.

    Former owner, employees at San Diego bakery plead guilty to charges stemming from ICE worksite investigation

    SAN DIEGO - The former owner of a San Diego wholesale bakery and four other bakery employees pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court Tuesday to knowingly hiring illegal aliens, the result of an investigation led by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Office of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and with assistance from the Social Security Administration, Office of the Inspector General.

    Jesse William Fadick, 64, the former owner of S&S Bakery, Inc., pleaded guilty to knowingly hiring 10 or more illegal aliens within a 12-month period. Fadick agreed to forfeit $800,000 in proceeds as a result of the offense and paid the forfeiture in full.
    The company's general manager, Jean-Pierre Martinez, 54, pleaded guilty to making a false attestation on an I-9 employment eligibility verification form. Two bakery supervisors, Rigoberto Sarmiento-Machuca, 35, and Rogelio Machuca-Sarmiento, 46, and an employee, Abel Baizabal, 38, pleaded guilty to misuse of entry documents.

    A sentencing hearing for all of the defendants is scheduled for December 6 before the U.S. District Judge Michael M. Anello. According to the plea agreements, Fadick and Martinez are expected to receive five years probation and prosecutors are recommending sentences at the low-end of the applicable sentencing guidelines for the other defendants.

    In a separate but related case, Norma Angelica Flores, 42, who was arrested by ICE HSI special agents during the execution of a search warrant in October and charged with illegal re-entry after deportation, was sentenced November 18 to six months in custody.

    In addition to the five defendants, this case also involved 19 illegal aliens who were initially detained as material witnesses and later released on bond. Following the entry of the guilty pleas, the material witnesses were ordered by the judge to surrender to ICE. A status hearing was set for January 25, 2011, to confirm that the material witnesses have self-surrendered.

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is the largest investigative arm of the Department of Homeland Security.

    ICE is a 21st century law enforcement agency with broad responsibilities for a number of key homeland security priorities. For more information, visit www.ICE.gov. To report suspicious activity, call 1-866-347-2423.
