Case against Saudi princess could be resolved before trial

The case against a Saudi princess charged with forcing two Indonesian women to be her domestic servants may settle out of court. Hana Al Jader's lawyers are planning talks with federal prosecutors to try and resolve the case before trial. Jader's lawyer made the remarks during a hearing in federal court in Boston this afternoon.

Jader is married to Prince Mohamed Bin Turki Alsaud. She's accused of confiscating the passports of two Indonesian women who worked as domestic servants at the family's homes in Arlington and Winchester. An indictment says the princess told the women they would suffer "serious harm" if they didn't perform the work. She's charged with forced labor, visa fraud and other crimes.
