Constantine Peter Kallas, formerly assistant chief counsel at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, is to learn his fate at 10 a.m. in Senior U.S. District Judge Terry J. Hatter's downtown courtroom.
Kallas was found guilty last year of conspiracy, six counts of bribery, two counts of obstruction of justice, seven counts of fraud and misuse of entry documents, three counts of aggravated identity theft, nine counts of making false statements to the Department of Labor, four counts of making false statements to obtain federal employee compensation, and four counts of tax evasion.
Kallas, who was placed on unpaid leave in January 2007, was jailed in August 2008, about two months after he was arrested by special agents with the FBI at the San Manuel Indian Bingo and Casino in Highland , where he and his wife accepted a bribe from an immigrant. Prosecutors, whose evidence included surveillance video of Kallas taking the money, said the Kallases told immigrants that he was an immigration official who could secure benefits for immigrants in exchange for cash.
Among those whom Kallas was found to have accepted bribes from were his housekeeper, who paid him $7,000 to obtain a dismissal of removal proceedings against the housekeeper's daughter.
The statutory maximum for all of the offenses, prosecutors said, is 256 years. Prosecutors have recommended a sentence of 353 months, but Hatter indicated at an earlier hearing that he was considering a 20-year sentence.

Constantine Kallas, a former Trial Attorney with ICE in Los Angeles, was found guilty of accepting bribes from undocumented immigrants and filing phony applications for employment authorization and other immigration benefits after a three-week jury trial in the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles. Kallas now faces up to 256 years in prison on more than 36 counts of conspiracy, accepting bribes, tax evasion, and various other fraud charges. An article today in the L.A. Daily Journal states that "Kallas posed as an immigration judge or other high-level official to obtain bribes as high as $20,000. By the time of his arrest in 2008, Kallas's bank accounts showed he had collected nearly $1 million beyond his salary over an eight-year period. The article also stated that L.A. Immigration Judges Mimi Tsankov and Tara Naselow-Nahas testified for the prosecution, recounting how Mr. Kallas asked that a particular case be dismissed because the Respondent was "cooperating with the government. The only problem: Mr. Kallas never revealed that the Respondent was his housekeeper's daughter, and Judge Naselow, at the time Mr. Kallas' supervisor, never authorized a dismissal.

Oh, and Mr. Kallas' housekeeper had also paid him $7,000.00 to get the case kicked out of court.
