(AP) — A Houston-area couple who pleaded guilty to federal charges
related to forcing a Nigerian woman to work nearly 20 hours taking care
of their home and five children without pay for two years was ordered
Friday to pay her more than $121,000 in restitution.
Nsobundu, 57, and his wife Sandra Nsobundu, 49, also were sentenced by
U.S. District Judge Nancy Atlas to seven months in jail and seven months
of home confinement, plus three years on probation.
naturalized U.S. citizens originally from Nigeria recruited the woman
there with the promise of a $100 monthly wage. Instead, authorities say
they abused her physically and verbally while she worked at their home
in the Houston suburb of Katy from September 2013 to October 2015.
