Defense attorneys for a Muttontown couple accused of enslaving two Indonesian women they hired as housekeepers filed a court brief late yesterday arguing that one of the women, who officials said had been tortured, had most likely inflicted the wounds on herself.
So here we have some explanation, by the defense, of how “Jane Doe 1” (one of the Indonesian woman allegedly enslaved and tortured by the defendants) got her injuries:
- She hurt herself,
- And there’s another person, from Jakarta (that’s the capital city of Indonesia), which we didn’t know about until now.
All allegations are denied by the defendants, and the pre-trial hearings continue.
