A federal grand jury says a Lexington couple should be tried for allegedly harboring illegal immigrants.

The Patel's were indicted on charges that they knowingly and willfully harbored undocumented Indian nationals who worked in their four Subway restaurants in Lexington.

The couple was arrested a month ago after federal agents raided their stores and searched their home on Ellerslie Park Boulevard.

The Patel's attorney has said the couple was only trying to live up to the teachings of their Hindu faith by helping people from their native India.

The couple is free on bond but living in their home under travel and personal contact restrictions.
