Labor Trafficking

Sara was a Chinese national, recruited in China for a job in the United States. When she arrived, her captor confiscated her passport and visa and forced her to work as a servant. She was not paid and could not leave the house. Her captors frequently beat her and threatened to report her to law enforcement should she try to leave. Her captors were eventually charged and convicted with illegally harboring Sara, and a third captor pled guilty to labor trafficking.
