Corrupt ICE lawyer gets prison


Constantine Peter Kallas, a one-time assistant chief counsel for ICE, was sentenced to more than 17 years in prison for pocketing hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes to create fake documents for illegal immigrants, including his housekeeper.

Kallas was also ordered to pay $296,000 in restitution after being convicted last year of 36 counts, including conspiracy, bribery and fraud.

How did he do it? Between 2003 and 2008, Kallas and his wife, Maria, set up two companies to file false paperwork claiming the immigrants had job offers to work in this country.

The Alta Loma, CA, couple banked about $950,000 before their arrests in 2008 with nearly half of that coming from bribes. Maria Kallas is scheduled to be sentenced May 2.
