6 indicted on slavery charges

A grand jury in South Florida indicted six people on federal charges of slavery Thursday.  The six were accused of enslaving undocumented workers from Mexico and Guatemala.

The recruited workers were allegedly subjected to violence and sometimes locked away for hours at a time inside trucks if they threatened to leave.

Their accused capturers face 18 counts together, which carry a maximum of 20 years in prison and a 250 thousand dollar fine.
