Aloun Farms alleged middleman might not have to pay

(HawaiiNewsNow) - Looking ahead, Tomorrow's the deadline for prosecutors to tell a judge what they think should happen to a man sentenced in connection to the now-dropped Aloun farms human trafficking case.

Matee Chowsanitphon pleaded guilty visa fraud in 2009 and was ordered to pay $2000 dollars in restitution to 24 of the alleged victims.

But last month, prosecutors asked the judge to suspend payments, when their case against Aloun farms fell apart.

Chowsanitphon was the alleged middle man, between Thai recruiters, and the Sou brothers, who run the farm and hired 44 Thai nationals back in 2004.
