Vice President of legal affairs at Sony Pictures a slave owner?

WTF is wrong with people??

A former Hollywood studio attorney and his wife are expected to be sentenced today for forcing their Filipina housemaid to work as a virtual slave in their Culver City condominium.
...
The Jacksons forced Ruiz to work 18-hour days for several months from 2001 to 2002.
...
In a related civil lawsuit, Ruiz said that Elizabeth Jackson regularly slapped her and pulled her hair. She also said she was forced to sleep on a dog bed and was paid a grand total of $300 for her work.
...
Ruiz said she was given three-day-old food to eat while she was expected to clean and provide fresh fruit to the Jacksons' dogs.
...
Ruiz said she finally ran away after she was hit in the mouth with a water bottle in February 2002.
