SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – A Sioux City woman facing human smuggling charges appears to have reached a plea deal.
A plea hearing for Amy Francisco is set for Tuesday, November 26, at the Federal Courthouse in Sioux City. She is expected to enter a guilty plea.
This comes a day after Francisco and her husband Cristobal Francisco-Nicolas received a delay to the start of their trials.
That delay will still apply to Francisco-Nicolas’ trial which is now set to start January 6.
Prosecutors say the couple helped smuggle two Guatemalans into the country and hid them in their Hamilton Boulevard home.
