HOUSTON – The victim in what has become known as the Katy Nanny case has been presented with a check for the full amount of restitution owed to her, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick.

“This woman now has a better chance at a fresh start,” said Patrick. “We cannot undo the mental and physical harm she has experienced as a result of what her tormenters did to her. However, what we can do is give her what she is owed and the ability to regain some financial stability.”

Sandra and Chudy Nsobundu brought the Nigerian woman here to serve as their nanny for their five children under the guise of a better life. However, during her more than two years with the couple, the victim was forced to work practically 24 hours a day, seven days a week and was subjected to verbal and physical abuse. She could not eat with the family and was forced to sleep on the floor between the beds of two minor children.
