Forced TRAFFICKING Suspect Caught – Law Enforcement Reveals His Name
(FeaturedNews.com) – James Earl Madison-Cranford of Warren, Michigan, faces charges for allegedly selling a young woman for sex. The 28-year-old stands accused of five felonies in an investigation dating all the way back to 2017. As it turns out, the alleged criminal is a habitual offender.
The accused is now looking at paying the price for multiple crimes that could carry a jail term of up to 95 years. According to clickondetroit.com, Oakland County’s 46th District Court arraigned Madison-Cranford on charges including prostitution, minor sex trafficking, conducting a criminal enterprise, transporting a female, and third-degree criminal misconduct. He’s currently locked up with bail set at $900,000.

Madison-Cranford reportedly used his own phone to post ads online and speak with the girl. Undercover investigators were able to intervene and rescue the minor, but her captor went free until now. Law enforcement officials and prosecutors haven’t divulged the alleged victim’s name, age, and other details related to the case.
Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said the investigation may seem to have taken a long time, but the years that passed since 2017 don’t erase the need for action. He stated that his team will fight for abuse survivors, and that they “remain committed to securing justice” for the victim.
