SUMMARY:

Defendants operated a labor trafficking ring that supplied agricultural workers to farms in Florida and North Carolina.  Evidence presented at trial showed that defendants recruited and transported laborers from Atlanta, Georgia to labor camps in Florid and North Carolina. The victims received little or no compensation for their work and were told that they owed defendants money for room and board and transportation. Defendants controlled the victims through threats of physical violence.  Other witnesses reported being beaten and observing the defendants capture and beat laborers who attempted to flee from the camps.
