SUMMARY:

“Frosty Treats,” a Russian company operating ice-cream trucks near Kansas City, Missouri, promised a group of college students from the Ukraine the opportunity to earn salaries between $10,000 and $15,000 for the summer in the United States. Once in the United States, however, the students were forced to work 13 hours a day, seven days a week, for less than minimum wage. Defendants restricted the students' access to telephone and mail communication. On September 10, 2007, David Carslake pled guilty to obstruction of mail; Frosty Treats entered a separate settlement agreement, agreeing to pay more than $47,555 to the six students, and to stop recruiting foreign students at all of its U.S. locations for the next two years. Several of the other defendants remain at large.
