Thumbs up Jailed for forced labour

Wish cases like these in the Middle East were also dealt like this:

Indian-born Varsha Mahender Sabhnani, 35, and Mahender Murlidhar Sabhnani, 51, were convicted of charges including forced labor, harboring illegal residents and conspiracy in what prosecutors dubbed “a case of modern-day slavery.”

Varsha Sabhnani and one of the couple’s daughters fainted after a jury in federal court in Central Islip, New York, found them guilty of 12 counts, a court official said. They each face up to 40 years in prison.

I was reading about this and couldn't help noticing the smug 'you won't jail us' look on their faces...kinda reminiscent of Conrad Black some months before......oh yes they will!!!!! Hope they throw the key away.
