ALBANY - Deliberations resumed Friday morning in the trial of Annie George.

She's accused of keeping a household servant as a prisoner inside her Rexford home, called Llenroc.

George allegedly cheated Valsamma Mathai, an illegal immigrant, out of hundreds of thousands of dollars in pay and forced her to work long hours without breaks.

Jurors got the case Thursday after George repeated her earlier testimony that she did not mistreat Mathai, or know that she was here illegally.

If convicted, George could get ten years in prison.
