ATLANTA (AP) - Federal prosecutors say an immigration attorney has been charged with submitting false documentation on behalf of an immigrant client seeking legal permanent resident status in the U.S.

The U.S. attorney’s office in Atlanta says Bonnie Monique Youn was arraigned Monday. Youn is free on bond and did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

Prosecutors say that from Feb. 9, 2009 to the present, Youn encouraged and induced a person to live in the U.S. illegally for her own financial benefit. Prosecutors say Youn also committed visa fraud by filing false documents with immigration officials.

Once an investigation had begun, prosecutors say Youn tried to get that person to provide false information to federal agents.

Youn was indicted April 1 and was released on a $25,000 unsecured bond.
