Southern Calif. judge delays arraignment for Saudi princess charged with human trafficking

A Southern California judge has delayed arraignment for a Saudi princess charged with human trafficking who failed to show up for the original hearing set for Monday.

The judge wasn't happy Meshael Alayban failed to appear, but he pushed back the arraignment to Sept. 20. Alayban's lawyers say she's complied with all court orders and will appear at her arraignment.

They didn't say where she is.

Alayban was arrested two weeks ago after a Kenyan woman claimed the princess hired her last year, took her passport, forced her to work excessive hours at an Irvine condominium and didn't allow her to leave.

Alayban is charged with one count of human trafficking and faces up to 12 years in prison if convicted. She's free on $5 million bail.
