A Louisiana man admits he's guilty of not paying 150 employees for the overtime they worked.

The Department of Justice says that Michael Langston of St. Amant pleaded guilty Thursday to federal charges of obstructing an investigation and failing to pay more than $240,000 in overtime over a three-year period beginning August 2013.

He said he was concerned about many of his workers immigration status.

Langston is the owner of Langston Construction LLC and Composite Architectural Design Systems, both located in Gonzales.
