    Businessman gets 6-month sentence in tax evasion - BY ROBERT E. KESSLER, Newsday.com
    "Three executives of other carpentry businesses are awaiting sentencing as a result of the investigation.

    Before he was sentenced, Kuhn said in court Friday, 'I'm very sorry.'

    O'Rourke, Kuhn's attorney, said his client has spent $70,000 over the years for immigration lawyers in a so far unsuccessful attempt to get many of his carpenters green cards.

    Officials of the carpenters union say many of the carpenters on Long Island who construct the wood skeletons, or frames, of houses, are undocumented immigrants -- often Ecuadorans who reside in the Patchogue area, or Brazilians from Newark.
