CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - An Iowa dairy farmer has been given three months in prison for employing people who authorities say were in the United States illegally.

Michael Millenkamp was sentenced last week in U.S. District Court in Cedar Rapids. The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1RbBRDt ) that Millenkamp also was ordered to forfeit $245,000. He’d pleaded guilty to harboring, encouraging and inducing someone living in the U.S. illegally.

Prosecutors say the 48-year-old Millenkamp, of rural Earlville, employed several people residing in the U.S. unlawfully between 2007 and 2011. Some of the employees were allowed to live at one or more of the farms owned by Millenkamp.
