DETROIT – A 55-year-old Detroit man is accused in a federal criminal complaint of sex trafficking two teen girls and an adult female.
Activities detailed in the complaint include placing commercial sex ads for both teen girls on a personals website.
Kevin Levon Giles, of Detroit, was taken into custody on Friday, May 28, after a complaint was filed against him in federal court, Acting U.S. Attorney Saima Mohsin and FBI Special Agent in Charge Timothy Waters announced in a joint statement.
The complaint alleges that on or about April 16, the FBI received information that a 17-year-old female had run away from home and was living with Giles at his residence on Pembroke Avenue in Detroit. The FBI had further information that a 16-year-old female was also living with Giles, and that both minors were engaged in commercial sex acts at Giles’ residence. Commercial sex ads placed on megapersonals.com allegedly included photos and videos of both girls.
Giles is also accused of coercing an adult female victim to engage in commercial sex acts.
The minors and the adult victim were recovered from Giles’ home by the Southeast Michigan Trafficking and Exploitation Crimes (SEMTEC) Task Force.
Giles appeared in court on Friday and was detained over the weekend. He is scheduled for a bond hearing at 1 p.m. today.
The FBI is looking for additional juveniles who may have had contact with Giles. Anyone with information related to Giles’ alleged sex trafficking operation is asked to call the FBI at 313-965-2323.
SEMTEC and the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office are investigating the case.
