Prosecutors seek no jail in Llenroc illegal maid case
ALBANY -- Prosecutors are recommending community service and house arrest for a hotelier's widow convicted of keeping an Indian woman in the country illegally.
The Daily Gazette of Schenectady reports (http://bit.ly/174jvu6 ) that federal prosecutors filed a sentencing memorandum last week in advance of Annie George's July 9 court appearance. They recommended eight months home detention, 200 hours community service, two years of probation and a $20,000 fine.
George faces a possible penalty of up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine but prosecutors aren't seeking jail time.
George was convicted in March of harboring an illegal immigrant at her massive stone mansion in rural Rexford, 15 miles northwest of Albany. She was acquitted of treating the woman as a slave.
Prosecutors are also seeking a ruling seizing the mansion.
