Arizona woman gets probation in forced labor case

Posted: Updated:

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - A Flagstaff woman will be on probation for five years after running what federal investigators called a "modern-day slavery" operation out of the family's wedding boutique and lingerie store.

The Arizona Daily Sun says a final deal with Huong Thi "Kelly" McReynolds was filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Phoenix.

She's the owner of the boutique and lingerie shop and also was ordered to pay seven named victims a total of $156,000 in 60 monthly payments.

McReynolds and her ex-husband were arrested in July 2011 along with two other family members. They were accused of forced labor and money laundering.

She pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor offense for violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act. The other family members also got plea deals that didn't include jail time.
