Former local restaurant owner sentenced to a year in prison


A former local restaurant owner will spend a year in prison.

Sergio Mucino owned Mexican restaurants in Buffalo, Cheektowaga and Kenmore.

Federal agents raided those restaurants in 2016.

They found Mucino and his co-owners had 10 undocumented immigrants on staff, who they paid in cash.

Mucino also failed to pay more than $1,000,000 in income taxes.
