This Day In Daily History

Jan. 26, 1984 — Attorneys for an Ann Arbor couple charged with holding two men as slaves for 16 years said the couple did not keep the men against their will.

This case is Michigan’s first slavery case in more than 60 years.

Ike Kozminski, his wife Marguerite and their son, John were each charged with one count of conspiracy to violate civil rights and two counts of involuntary servitude.

U.S. District Attorney Virginia Morgan said the two men had been physically beaten, deprived of food and clothing and stripped of their dignity.

But defense attorney Ivan Barris said both workers were provided with social security and covered by insurance.

The two workers, Robert Fulmer and Louis Molitoris, both mentally retarded, worked for the Kozminskis from 1967 until they were removed from the Kozminskis’ farm in late August by officials from the State Department of Social Services.
