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.
