Linda Le, 42, of Shrewsbury, pleaded guilty to perjury on Friday, February 5, for lying in testimony she gave before a grand jury in 2018 an 2019.
Le testified in May 2018 and March 2019 that she did not know anyone involved with Worcester-based employment agency UT services. She also testified she knew nothing about the company and had no role with it.

A grand jury indicted Tam Vuong in August of 2019 on fraud and tax charges in connection with his oversight of UT Services and Prime Labor, another Worcester-based employment agency.
Vuong’s trial will begin on September 7.
The charges against Le, lying to a grand jury, provides for a sentence of up to five years in prison.
