Annie George New York

Annie George New York, Federal authorities have accused an upstate New York woman of breaking immigration law by keeping an illegal alien as a servant who was paid little for cooking, cleaning and care for six children.
According to the criminal complaint, 39-year-old Annie George of Rexford induced the Indian woman, identified only as V.M., to overstay her visa. She had worked as a domestic servant for a U.N. employee’s family previously, but George offered her $1,000 a month in 2005 to come to the Albany area. The woman said she worked about 17 hours a day at the family’s mansion and was only paid about $29,000 altogether.
After a hotline complaint of forced labor, immigration agents removed her from George’s home last May. Her whereabouts could not immediately be learned.
George was released on her own recognizance after an initial court appearance this week.
Her lawyer, Donald Kinsella, said Thursday that she will deny the charge.
“We just dispute what’s alleged in the complaint. There’s several exaggerations, gross errors,” he said.
