Here's a grim tale: according to the San Francisco Chronicle, a Walnut Creek realtor has been charged with luring a Peruvian woman to the United States, imprisoning her in her apartment, and forcing her to take care of her children. Mabelle de la Rosa Dann allegedly promised the nanny that she would live in a spacious California home and earn $600 a month. Instead, she was cooped up in Dann's apartment, never paid a cent, and forced to sleep on the floor. Dann allegedly pocketed the nanny's passport, rationed her food, abused her, and wouldn't let her watch TV or radio because it would put ideas in her head. Dann now faces federal charges stemming from the incident, which she has denied
