YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Three of the thirteen people indicted following an immigration raid at the Salem Fresh Mark plant remain in custody of U.S. Marshals after appearing in U.S. District Court in Youngstown.

Twenty-one-year-old Clemente Perez-Hernandez, Pedro Tzep-Lorenzo, 33, and Roberto Santay-Ajanel, 25, each pleaded not guilty to charges of making a false statement of citizenship and using a false social security card and state identification card in the name of another person, as part of the application process for employment.

All three men are from Guatemala according to authorities.

Santay-Ajanal indicated that he intends to change his not guilty plea when he appears back before a magistrate in November.

Thirteen people were indicted by a Federal Grand Jury following the June 19 search of the Fresh Mark meat processing plant in Salem.
