Katy couple sentenced for forcing nanny to work unpaid

A couple from Katy is now convicted of enslaving their nanny. They were sentenced to 14 months in prison each – seven of which will be home confinement.

The wife, Sandra, entered a guilty plea to unlawful conduct and forced labor. Her husband pleaded guilty to visa fraud.

The victim was a Nigerian woman who was abused from 2013 to 2015. During that time, she was not paid and her passport was withheld.

In exchange for their guilty pleas, the couple will have to pay the victim $129,000 and they will get to keep their home.

On the Factor is the man who at one point considered taking the couple on as a client, attorney Gordon Quan.
