Katy couple gets 7 months in prison for forcing nanny to work without pay

A Houston-area couple accused of abusing their nanny has been ordered to pay her more than $120,000 restitution.

Chudy and Sandra Nsobundu pleaded guilty to federal charges related to forcing the woman to work nearly 20 hours a day taking care of their home and five children without pay for two years.

The couple was sentenced Sunday to seven months in jail and seven months of home confinement, plus three years on probation.

The couple and their nanny are originally from Nigeria. Officials say they recruited her to work at their Katy home with the promise of a $100 monthly wage.
