Three owners of a Spring Hill business that provided local builders with wall and roof systems will each spend one year and one day in federal prison for hiring illegal immigrants for competitive advantage.

James Humbert, 45; his wife, Kimberly Humbert, 47; and her brother, Charles Stevens II, 51, were sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to conspiracy to harbor undocumented workers for private financial gain.

The Humberts and Stevens were co-owners of Advantage Framing in Spring Hill.

According to court documents, the three knowingly paid lower wages to illegal workers so they could underbid for jobs.
