A 39-year-old Indian-American lady lawyer today confessed to visa misrepresentation charges related to students and H-1B visas, federal prosecutors said. Sunila Dutt, of Virginia, pleaded guilty before US District Judge Kevin McNulty in Newark federal court to a data accusing her of intrigue to confer visa extortion and deter equity.
Sunila, an immigration lawyer for two information technology organizations – SCM Data Inc and MMC Systems Inc – conceded that she submitted fake archives and hindered a government examination as a major aspect of a plan that deceitfully acquired outside laborer visas, US Attorney Paul J Fishman declared.
As per court data, SCM Data Inc and MMC Systems Inc offered experts to customers needing IT bolster.
Both organizations enrolled outside nationals, frequently understudy visa holders or late school graduates and supported them for H-1B visas.
Sunila and different plotters enlisted remote laborers with indicated IT ability who looked for work in the United States.
The backstabbers then supported the outside laborers' H-1B visas with the expressed reason for working for SCM Data and MMC Systems' customers all through the United States.
While presenting the visa printed material to United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the backstabbers dishonestly spoke to that the remote specialists had full-time positions and were paid a yearly compensation, as required to secure the H-1B visas, government prosecutors asserted.
In spite of these representations and disregarding the H-1B program, the backstabbers paid the outside laborers just when they were put at an outsider customer who went into an agreement with SCM Data or MMC Systems.
Equity Department charged that in a few occurrences, false finance records were produced to make the appearance that the remote laborers were paid full-time compensation.
Sunila conceded that she submitted, or created to be submitted, one or more filings to USCIS erroneously speaking to the organizations would utilize remote specialists for in-house positions when no such positions existed.
Sunila faces a most extreme potential punishment of five years in jail and a USD 250,000 fine. Sentencing is booked for February 6, 2017.
