Slave Labor Charges_Lind.jpg

This combination of undated photos released by the Ashland County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday, June 19, 2013 shows, from left, Daniel Brown, Jordie L. Callahan and Jessica L. Hunt. A woman told authorities she was held captive for more than a year by the three who forced her to do housework, raided her bank account and menaced her with snakes and pit bulls. But an attorney for one of the suspects and the alleged captor's mother said the mentally impaired woman was given a place to stay because she and her young daughter had no home and that the woman was free to move in an out whenever she wanted. Authorities announced federal charges Tuesday, June 18, 2013 against the three people the woman lived with about 65 miles (100 kilometers) southwest of Cleveland. Beginning in early 2011, they forced the mother to cooperate with them by threats and physical abuse, they said. (AP Photo/Ashland County Sheriffs Office)
