JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - A Jackson man accused of pocketing his workers’ paychecks and forcing them to work for him under the threat of deportation is facing a felony human trafficking charge.

Prosecutors say Jose Marco Cesar Rosales Espinosa scammed both his employer and his employees while he was a supervisor at Standard Drywall. He is accused of falsifying time cards and forcing crew members to work for far less pay than they earned by using threats of deportation.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports (https://bit.ly/1gjCuFV ) Rosales Espinosa also faces a charge of obtaining property by false pretenses, which stems from his alleged practice of falsifying payroll records at the company.
