Saudi man posts bond in virtual-slave case

A Saudi Arabian man accused of raping his housekeeper and holding her as a virtual slave in his Aurora home was released from jail Friday. Homaidan Al-Turki posted a total of $850,000 bond to federal, state and immigration courts in order to be released. Al-Turki and his wife, Sarah Khonaizan, are accused of enslaving an Indonesian woman in their home for four years, forcing her to cook and clean for almost no pay. Al-Turki also is accused of sexually assaulting the woman. Dan Recht, Al-Turki's attorney, said a little more than half the bond posted came from Al-Turki's extended family, and $400,000 was provided by the Saudi government.
