This is a good case and prosecutions. A couple of things about this.
1)The sentence would have been much lighter if it was handled by state prosecutors.
2)The crimes described here are pervasive in the Florida construction industry, because the contractors that use the labor supplied through the system hardly face any accountability. Chances are that the contractors that used the workers have moved on to other labor suppliers (or the same ones operating under different shell company identities) that break the same laws.
