TUCSON — A man who employed unauthorized workers at Sun Drywall and Stucco Inc. in Sierra Vista was sentenced to two months of home detention on Monday in U.S. District Court.

Omar Reyes pleaded guilty in an agreement to a misdemeanor for conspiracy to employ unauthorized aliens and continuing to employ illegal aliens.

During a hearing Monday, Judge Raner Collins called the offense is “very serious.” He sentenced him to 60 days of home detention and imposed a $500 fine. Reyes will not serve probation.

Reyes is one of eight people charged in March 2007 with conspiring to harbor or shield from detection illegal workers from Mexico and knowingly hiring or aiding in the hiring of the workers over a 12-month period. The other defendants are Efrain Silvain Avechuco, Edward Durgin, Ivan Hardt, Carol Hill, Joaquin Neave, Santiago Trejo Ramirez and Jose Gutierrez Tapia.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Munish Sharda, who is prosecuting the case, said Reyes is one of the least culpable defendants, and so he said the 60-day sentence is fair. Andrea Matheson, the defense attorney, agreed to the 60-day sentence.

Hill was sentenced in November to 14 months, with two months in prison and 12 months in home detention, a $10,000 fine and 500 hours of community service. Tapia was sentenced in December to a term of 12 months, with two months in prison and 10 months in home detention, and a $15,000 fine.

Durgin was sentenced in October to three years of probation. Neave was sentenced in January to three years of probation and a $1,000 fine. Hardt and Ramirez have pending cases. Avechuco is still a fugitive.
