BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - The owner of a Birmingham-area
construction company has been sentenced to three years probation
for harboring and employing illegal aliens, U.S. Attorney Joyce
Vance said.

Vance announced Wednesday that U.S. District Judge Inge Johnson
ordered 38-year-old Beverly Linan of Alabaster to forfeit more than
$75,000 and eleven firearms.

More than $10,000 and the property where she operated her
business has already been forfeited.

She owned and operated Rodriguez Construction Co., which performed masonry work throughout Jefferson and Shelby counties.

Linan pleaded guilty March 31.

Vance said Linan has been using the E-Verify system to show she
has not hired any more illegal immigrants.
