Denver (AP) The husband and wife owners of a sushi restaurant are accused of allegedly treating two their workers as indentured servants and withholding over $100,000 in wages.
Forty-three-year old Young Jo Kwon, 43 and his 41-year-old wife, Jessie, were arrested today and charged with five counts of theft and forging of tax and labor documents.
They've posted bond and the law firm representing them declined to comment on the charges.
The couple now owns a sushi restaurant in Greenwood Village but used to own another one in Denver. While at the Denver restaurant, they're accused of forcing two Korean immigrants to work without pay by threatening to have their families deported.
