ln Brief: Cambodian guilty in marriage racket

A Cambodian woman living in the US who brought other Cambodians to the country illegally by arranging fake marriages with Americans was sentenced Monday to 33 months in prison by a US District Court in Seattle, Washington, according to a statement from the US Attorney's office. Vuthy Sim, 35, was convicted on visa fraud and money-laundering charges after pocketing US$160,000 in the scheme. US Embassy spokesman John Johnson said the conviction was the "result of solid interagency cooperation and highlights the success that the US government has had in tracking down and prosecuting those who would commit immigration fraud anywhere in the world".
