The former chief executive officer of the nation's largest kosher meatpacking plant has been named in a new 99-count federal indictment filed in Iowa. Former Agriprocessors CEO Sholom Rubashkin is already being held on charges of bank fraud, harboring illegal immigrants, document fraud and identity theft. The new indictment adds charges of money laundering and violating an order from the US secretary of agriculture. The indictment was filed late Thursday in US District Court in Cedar Rapids. It also names three co-defendants who worked at the plant in Postville, Iowa. The plant was the target of a massive immigration raid last year and its operators have been accused of child-labor violations.
