Ohio woman allegedly enslaved spent time in jail
Wednesday - 6/19/2013, 4:11pm EDT
ASHLAND, Ohio (AP) -- A mentally disabled Ohio woman who authorities say was enslaved for two years with her daughter recently spent time in jail after pleading guilty to beating the girl.
Court records show that a child endangering complaint was filed against the woman in October 2012. That came just after the woman was charged with shoplifting and asked to be jailed because three people had been mean to her.
Federal prosecutors on Tuesday charged those three people with forced labor.
The woman was sentenced to 150 days in jail in February after pleading guilty to child endangering.
The Ashland Times-Gazette reports her attorney told a judge during sentencing that two of the suspects encouraged the woman to abuse the child and threatened to go to police if she didn't comply.
