SUMMARY:

Defendants are a husband and wife and their son. The victims, Robert Fulmer and Louis Molitoris, are two mentally incompetent men in their 60’s. They worked as farm workers on Defendants’ dairy farm seven days a week, up to seventeen hours a day, and were paid very little if anything. The victims suffered psychological, physical, and verbal abuse at the hands of Defendants, and were deprived medical care. At the time they began working for the Defendants, Molitoris was homeless and Fulmer was working at another farm, and was recruited by Mrs. Kozminski when seen walking down the street.
