Isn't this rewarding slave-owners?

I found this reference at FoxNews.com
Abdel-Nasser Youssef Ibrahim, 45, was sentenced to three years in prison, and his former wife, Amal Ahmed Ewis Abdel-Motelib, 43, received a 22-month sentence. U.S. District Judge James V. Selna ordered the pair to pay restitution of $76,173 to the girl, who is now 16 years old, for the work she performed.

Ibrahim and his ex-wife each pleaded guilty in June to conspiracy, holding a person in involuntary servitude through force or coercion, obtaining labor through unlawful force or coercion and harboring an illegal alien.
OK, let me see if I understand this:

They bring an illegal alien - who is, BTW, 10 years old - to this country, take away her passport, and force her to clean their house and take care of their 5 children.

She is a prisoner in their home, living in squalor.

He gets 3 years in prison, his wife gets just under 2 years. And they have to pay $38,000 for their 2-year enslavement of a pre-adolescent?

Is that a financial bargain? Heck, the reparations people are asking even more than that - for people who weren't even slaves!

Count on it - we're going to see more of these cases in the future - owning a slave sounds like the bargain of the century!

What a pathetic excuse for a judge.
