A former Illinois spa and massage parlor owner who used violence and threats of violence to force three women from the Ukraine and one from Belarus to work for him without pay and, at times, little to no subsistence over a two-year period was sentenced Monday to life in federal prison without the possibility of parole, the Justice Department said.
Cook County, Ill., Sheriff Thomas J. Dart, whose office initiated the investigation, said he was "extremely proud" of the effort and resolution of all the agencies involved with the successful investigation, conviction and sentencing "of such a violent individual."
