Assistant U.S. Attorney Chris Plumlee says 46-year-old Sen Chen of Mountain Home pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court in Harrison.
Plumlee says Chen hired and housed 10 illegal immigrants to work for his Chen's Gardens restaurant. The prosecutor says the immigrants include eight Chinese nationals and two Mexican nationals.
Plumlee said Chen faces up to five years in prison and $250,000 in fines when he's sentenced in about 60 days.
