Ketchum Men Sentenced For Immigration Marriage Scheme
The U.S. Attorney’s Office says two men from Ketchum have been sentenced to five years of probation each for taking part in a marriage fraud scheme. U.S. Attorney Wendy Olson says the men were sentenced in Boise’s U.S. District Court on Wednesday. She says 33-year-old Daniel Casado and 29-year-old Joshua Lee Buell both entered plea agreements admitting that they entered sham marriages with Peruvian women to help the women get immigration benefits. Olson says the men were paid between $3,000 to $5,000 to participate in the marriage fraud.
