(FOX40.COM) — Former Sacramento City Council Member Sean Loloee is appearing in court on Monday.
It’s Loloee’s first court appearance since his arraignment in December regarding charges against him related to unfair labor practices at the Viva Supermarket grocery stores he owns.
Loloee resigned from his District 2 city council seat on Jan. 4, weeks after he was indicted on 25 federal charges.
The former councilman and the general manager of his stores, Karla Montoya, are facing charges including conspiracy to defraud the U.S. Department of Labor, obstruction of agency proceedings and possession and use of false immigration documents.
Loloee is facing additional charges of falsification of records, wire fraud and pandemic relief fraud.
In late October, Loloee’s grocery stores were searched by agents from federal and state agencies.
The December indictment lists Loloee as a Granite Bay resident and a judge directed him to live at a Granite Bay house owned by his wife since he is also barred from speaking with Montoya, whom Loloee said on previous occasions lives in a North Sacramento home where he also claimed to live during his time as a council member.
