SUMMARY:One Defendant owned a migrant camp and the other two Defendants were lieutenants at the camp.  Workers were brought to the camp being promised steady work and pay, but were forced to pay off "debts" before being allowed to leave.  Defendants withheld wages from workers and threatened them with violence.  The victims left the camp to buy personal items and were picked up by two of the Defendants, who severely beat them and brought them back to the camp.  Victims were told they would beaten or killed if they tried to leave again.  Representatives of Farm Workers' Legal Services arrived and drove the victims away from the camp.  One Defendant was sentenced to 10 years in prison, another was sentenced to 5 years.  The appellate court upheld the judgment.
