Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas charged a Saudi princess Wednesday with one count of human trafficking for allegedly holding a domestic worker against her will and forcing her to work at an Irvine, Calif., condominium. If convicted, 42-year-old Meshael Alayban faces up to 12 years in prison.
Police arrested Alayban after a Kenyan woman flagged down a bus Tuesday and told a passenger she thought she was a human trafficking victim. The passenger contacted police, who searched the condo where Alayban and her family were staying.
