Annie George accused of keeping servant as slave in 24-carat gold New York mansion

DID Annie Gorge and her husband Mathai Kolath George induce an illegal immigrant from India to overstay her visa and live in a cupboard at their  Saratoga CountyNew York, mansion?

The Smoking Gun has news of the allegation that Annie George, 39, and Mathai George secured the services of a woman known only as VM from Kerala. VM was, reportedly, offered around $1,000 a month pay. She would live at the Georges’ 34-room, 15-fireplace, 24-karat gold coated ceilinged, 30,000-square-foot Llenroc mansion. VM would look after the couple’s four young children and do other stuff (a lot of polishing).

New York’s minimum wage is $7.25 an hour. But V.M. claims to have received 85 cents an hour, for working 17-hour days, seven days a week. She lived in the Georgs’ home for 67 months. The law says V.M. is entitled to $206,000 in back wages, health benefits, sick days and time off.
