FRANKFORT, Ky. A Frankfort man, Fei Guo Tang, 49, was sentenced to 70 months in federal prison on Wednesday, by U.S. District Court Judge Gregory VanTatenhove, for knowingly receiving child pornography and knowingly failing to pay workers minimum and time-and-a-half overtime wages.

According to his plea agreement, a forensic examination of Fei Guo Tang’s telephone revealed five videos containing depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.  Additionally, he failed to pay more than $60,000 in required overtime and minimum wages, to five of his employees.  As part of his sentence, Tang will be required to pay that amount in restitution. The Defendant was also ordered to pay $84,151.00, in lieu of forfeiture of property. Finally, Tang will pay a $20,000 civil penalty to the U.S. Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division.

Under federal law, Tang must serve 85 percent of his prison sentence and will be under the supervision of the U.S. Probation Office for ten years.

Robert M. Duncan, Jr., United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky; Jason Crosby, U.S. Department of State, Diplomatic Security Service, Supervisory Special Agent, Criminal Division; Matthew Utley, Assistant District Director, Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division; Rafiq Ahmad Special Agent in Charge, DOL Office of Inspector General; Rod Owens, Special Agent in Charge, Social Security Administration, Office of Inspector General; and Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, jointly made the announcement.
