let him see his father while keeping him hostage. (Tall order)

Woman charged with forced labor pleads not guilty - News14.com

Charlotte, North Carolina -- Lucinda Shackleford, 53 is charged with force labor and document servitude. She is accused of forcing an illegal alien male teenager to work without pay in her home.

“Shackleford had an agreement with the Department of Health and Human Services to take care of the teen at her north Charlotte home while he and his father handled immigration issues. But instead, investigators say she forced him to work, failed to provide adequate food, threatened to report him and his father, and even have them deported or jailed.”

Shackleford is accused of keeping the boy hostage and not letting him see his father. She maintains that the boy “didn’t do anything that he didn’t want to do.”

If convicted Shackleford could get more than 20 years in prison. Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE) said that human trafficking is a serious problem on the rise and it is a growing problem in North Carolina.
