The couple accused of harboring illegal aliens to work in their Subway Restaurants in Lexington were back in court on Monday for their Detention Hearing.

Federal Prosecutors spent most of the morning showing the Patel's financial records.

They say those records showed discrepancies between how much they said they were paying the employees at their four restaurants, and how much they actually were paying them.

According to court documents the Patel's had a net income of more than 270-thousand dollars over an 18-month span.

Prosecutors believe the Patels will use that money to flee the area, and are asking the courts to keep the couple in custody.

The Defense says that once they obtain IRS records, they'll show that the Patels finances are all in order and tied up in their property investments and their businesses.

The Federal Court has 30 days to decide on the Patel's detention hearing.
