Gazette Premium Content Man gets 130 months in Colorado human trafficking case

Associated Press Published: February 11, 2014

DENVER — A federal judge has sentenced a Highlands Ranch man to 130 months in prison in a human trafficking case.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says 49-year-old Kizzy Kalu was sentenced Tuesday. He must also serve three years' probation and pay $3.8 million in restitution.

Kalu was convicted last year of 89 counts of mail fraud, visa fraud, human trafficking and money laundering.

Prosecutors say Kalu and 78-year-old Philip Langerman of McDonough, Ga., claimed they were bringing foreigners to the U.S. to provide nursing instruction at non-existent university. Instead, prosecutors say, the immigrants worked in nursing homes, and Kalu took much of their earnings.

Langerman pleaded guilty to charges from the scheme and was sentenced to three years of probation. He was also ordered to pay restitution along with Kalu.
