Fmr. slaughterhouse manager guilty of fraud

Court Watch Posted on

A jury has found the former manger of a kosher slaughterhouse in Iowa guilty on 86 of 91 financial fraud charges.

The verdict against Sholom Rubashkin came Thursday evening after a nearly monthlong trial.

Rubashkin was charged with bank, mail and wire fraud, money laundering and ignoring orders to pay cattle providers in the time required by federal law.

The charges were linked to Rubashkin's job as a top manager at the former Agriprocessor's plant in Postville, Iowa. He was arrested months after a May 2008 immigration raid there that led to the arrest of 389 workers.
