SUMMARY:Joseph Yannai, age 68, was convicted of various crimes relating to forced labor in June 2011. From 2003-2009, Yannai recruited women through au pair websites and offered them work in his New York home performing domestic services and clerical tasks.He contacted over 1,500 women and 5 women testified against him. He sent emails under false identities in which he posed as female employees. Once his victims arrived at his home, he controlled what the women wore and their level of contact with the outside world. He sexually assaulted some of the women and threatened them all with physical violence. Yannai was sentenced to 11 years in prison.
