SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A Pacific Beach bakery owner who brazenly hired illegal aliens was scheduled to be sentenced at the downtown federal courthouse Monday.
Michael Malecot, owner and president of The French Gourmet Inc., pleaded guilty Oct. 13 to a misdemeanor charge related to his practice of hiring and employing undocumented workers, which he had been doing since 2003 even though he was fined by the Immigration and Naturalization Service in the 1990s for hiring illegal aliens.
As Malecot admitted in his guilty plea, there was evidence proving that 91 aliens were employed unlawfully at the bakery on Turquoise Street.
Malecot also admitted to repeated acts of re-hiring undocumented workers even after the company received "no-match" letters from the Social Security Administration notifying them that the employees' names did not match the Social Security numbers reported on tax returns.
