    Charlotte woman faces slavery-related charges involving illegal - WBTV 3 News, Weather, Sports, and Traffic for Charlotte, NC-

    Ok. If I am reading this correctly, the DHS put this illegal teenager in her care. She made him do chores around the house (which apparently is illegal for illegals). The father, also an illegal, was obviously unfit to care for him. And now he's pressing charges against his former friend. Is that it?

    If the woman had an American foster child, or had her own kids do chores, would she be facing 25 years in jail? Incredible.

    No good deed goes unpunished.

    Cleaning the yard and "allegedly selling beer and food". Doesn't sound like hard labor to me. And the indictment said he wasn't supposed to work at all. He is now over 18. WTF?

    If the details of this story are accurate then she wasn't a foster parent, she was exploting her ward.

    IF we have the whole story...which I doubt...as usual.

    Oh its quite possible that she is a disgusting human being who was ripping off the system. But that's not what she's charged with.

    You bold the first part but not the second part.

    60 yards. Plus making him commit a illegal act by selling beer out of her trailer. She was exploiting the young man that was put in her care.

    It's also alleged that she was withholding his birth certificate. That's an indication of force.

    If the allegations are true, the charges are warranted. She took a minor into her home unsupervised by any legal entity in exchange for money, kept him there by withholding his identification and forced him to perform illegal acts for her own enrichment and labor in contravention of the agreement between her and the parent.

    Sounds like exploitation to me. The "in furtherance of trafficking" part is interesting. Was she planning to sell him off? Make the father buy him back?

    If there were no evidence whatsoever, particularly under the circumstances with illegals involved, no prosecutor is going to bring charges on a case bound to turn high profile. The question is what evidence and how much can be substantiated, which nobody will know until and unless it goes to court.

    So there's obviously something there. Exactly what, we don't know.
