A New York lawyer has taken a plea in a massive immigration conspiracy case involving at least 10 law firms accused of submitting bogus asylum applications.

John Lin,who works for an unidentified Manhattan law firm, pleaded guilty last week in federal court in Manhattan to conspiring to commit immigration fraud, the Staten Island Advance reports. He is one of eight lawyers charged in the case, and the second to plead guilty, according to authorities.

An FBI press release provides further details.
