An East Los Angeles man was in jail Sunday for investigation of kidnaping a 16-year old girl on the pretense of finding her a job. Los Angeles police said Frank Palomino, 37, was arrested Saturday after his alleged victim spotted him in another car as detectives were returning her to the city from Tijuana. Hollenbeck Division Detective John Santy said Palomino, on Thursday, told the girl and her aunt that he would take them to places where they could find jobs.

In the months that writer Yolanda Figueroa and her husband, Fernando Balderas, basked in prominence after the August release of their book on a powerful Mexican drug cartel, there were darker forces at work far closer to the couple's posh home here, prosecutors say. Indeed, it was about when the couple launched the campaign to sell their muckraking expose on Gulf cartel boss Juan Garcia Abrego that investigators now say Balderas had also turned the family's maids into "sexual hostages."

But such women have faced innumerable bureaucratic, legal and cultural obstacles when trying to exercise that right in this overwhelmingly Roman Catholic country.
