A Nigerian woman, who was the victim of modern day slavery in Katy, will receive restitution of $121,046.91 in one check. This is the first time that a restitution payment has been ordered paid all at once instead of in payments. The U.S. Attorney's office was seeking $129,108, that they stated were back wages.
The victim was hired in Nigeria by the Katy couple, Sandra and Chudy Nsobundu, who brought her to the U.S. for work but never paid her. She was abused over the course of the two years physically and emotionally.
The case shocked the quiet community of Canyon Gate in Cinco Ranch back in October 2015. Thanks to an observant neighbor who noticed the victim had shoes that did not fit and wore the same clothes every day, the woman was rescued.
The victim is now working with YMCA Global Initiatives to become a U.S. citizen.
