BOSTON (AP) -- The U.S. Attorney's office says the president of a leather-goods factory raided last year has agreed to plead guilty to harboring and concealing illegal immigrants.
Francesco Insolia owns Michael Bianco Inc. in New Bedford. In March 2007, authorities arrested 361 workers, most of them from Latin America.
Insolia was charged with conspiring to induce illegal immigrants to live in the United States and conspiring to hire illegal immigrants. The agreement calls for him to plead guilty to a single charge.
U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan scheduled a news conference later Monday.
Immigrant advocates claimed the raid separated families and left children without proper care. Federal authorities say the raid was properly handled.
