Woman who abused servant loses appeal to keep mansion



Annie George, who was convicted in 2013 of harboring an illegal immigrant, has lost her appeal to keep her 34-room, 30,000-square-foot home, called Llenroc mansion.

Mathai cared for George's five kids and took care of the house from generally 5:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. seven days a week with no time off, according to documents.

George never paid Mathai her promised $1,000 per month wage over five years. Instead, Matha received around $26,000 total, court papers charge. Mathai said she slept in a closet and was forbidden from leaving the 20,000-square-foot mansion overlooking the Mohawk River.

George's appeals attorney, Mark Baker, is working on a way allow her to keep the property.
