A father and son from Bedfordshire who forced destitute men into servitude have been jailed.
Tommy Connors Senior, 53, was jailed for eight years and his son Patrick, 21, for five years at Luton Crown Court.
The pair, from the Greenacres site in Little Billington, Leighton Buzzard, had been convicted last July of servitude, compulsory labour and assault charges after a trial at the court.
hey were sentenced after a separate trial failed to reach verdicts on other charges against both men
and two more of Connors Senior's sons James Connors, 25, and Tommy Junior Connors, 27.
A jury at Luton Crown Court was discharged after failing to reach verdicts on any of the charges against the four men, Bedfordshire Police said.
