My Way News - N.Y. millionaire gets prison for enslaving workers

Quote:
A millionaire who inflicted years of abuse on two Indonesian housekeepers held as virtual slaves in her Long Island mansion was sentenced Thursday to 11 years in prison.

Varsha Sabhnani, 46, was convicted with her husband in December on a 12-count federal indictment that included forced labor, conspiracy, involuntary servitude and harboring aliens.
I hope she has learned her lesson! May she rot in prison!

Having worked as a house keeper for a very prominent and wealthy CA family, I can tell you that, I was treated horribly, berated, and basically treated as a second class scrub woman, oh yeah, they never paid me for my last two weeks. I had to file a small claims suite against the millionaires I worked for. They were all paranoid and totally 5150, and the biggest pigs !!! Worst job I ever had !

I hope she rots also !!!

It sounds as if they arrived in the US and immediately went to this woman's home. She then confiscated their passports and travel documents so that even if they had wanted to leave the country and not overstay their visas (because you can't arrive from Indonesia without one) they couldn't so it looks as if she actually made them into illegal aliens by confiscating their documents.

Wealthy New Yorker jailed for keeping slaves - World - smh.com.au

The woman looks like a witch! Look at her picture! She will probably be beaten in jail. Especially people who despise the concept of slavery. She will get what she deserves.

I think that is an unfair judgment on those people's part. Their passports were stolen from them and they were kept against their will. This happens to women from Europe whereby they are kept as sex workers. It is horrible what happens to immigrants from other countries. They are exploited and abused.

It doesn't matter what the facts or circumstances were, illegal is illegal.

If here illegally due to being kidnapped, then brought over (sex trade comes to mind).......we are dealing with a can of worms here because said 'illegals' may have to stay here (in custody) as witnesses in a court of law.

The true illegal immigrants are the ones who come here on their own volition.

What about the thousands of kids(dream act kids) who were brought here at a young age without their own volition? Surely i have seen a lot of posts on here referring to them as criminals.
