WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas woman serving a federal sentence for enslaving mentally ill residents at a Newton group home is seeking an early release from a federal medical center.

Linda Kaufman and her husband, Arlan Kaufman, were convicted about a decade ago of forcing residents to work naked at their farm and perform sexual acts over a 15-year period, while billing their families and the government for “nude therapy” sessions.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1Pth1PH ) that Prison Warden Jody Upton has extended to victims an opportunity to comment on a request submitted by Linda Kaufman for “compassionate release” from Carswell Federal Medical Center in Fort Worth, Texas.

Linda Kaufman’s served about a decade and otherwise won’t be out of prison until 2018.

Her husband lost a 2012 appeal of his 30-year sentence.
