Court filing: Man to plead guilty in harboring


GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Federal court records indicate a man plans to plead guilty to a charge of harboring illegal immigrants in south Mississippi.

Court records say Juan Escobar Barajas worked to harbor illegal immigrants with a group that included the owners and managers of Mexican restaurants in Poplarville and Picayune.

Barajas allegedly owned several houses in Picayune that were used to house illegal immigrants.

Barajas' lawyer, Peter Barrett, said Friday in a filing that Barajas will plead guilty in the case.
