SUMMARY:Micronesian couple were indicted by a federal grand jury for forcing a 19-year-old domestic servant from Micronesia to work in their home without paying her. The couple arranged for the servant to obtain a passport to travel from Micronesia to Tacoma, Washington, and helped her obtain a social security card. They then withheld these documents from her to force her to cook, clean, and perform childcare without pay. They forced her to find employment at a chicken processing plant and controlled all of her earnings. They isolated the woman in their home. After a year, she was able to escape.
