DETROIT, MI – Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette today announced the conviction of Jahan Satati Green, 38-years-old, of Inkster, on five felonies for his role in running a prostitution ring across Oakland, Macomb and Wayne County.
“Prostitution continues to be an issue I am dedicated to fighting in our state,” said Schuette. “As a husband and father it never gets easier to hear about this horrific crime. I continue to be dedicated to finding justice for these victims and working toward eradicating this issue completely.”
Green was convicted on the following charges:
- Two counts of Prostitution/Transporting a Person, a felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison; and,
- Two counts of Prostitution/Accepting Earnings, a felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison; and,
- One count of Criminal Enterprises – Conducting, a felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
Green is scheduled to be sentenced on April 11, 2016 in Wayne County Circuit Court before visiting Judge Michael Callahan.
All five of the offenses for which Green was sentenced carry a 20 year maximum sentence. However, because of his prior record, Green will be sentenced as a Third Felony Offender which doubles the maximum allowed sentence to up to 40 years.
An investigation into Green revealed that he had orchestrated an online “escort” operation beginning in 2006. In his prostitution operation, Green prostituted and assaulted two victims in particular. Green assaulted these one young victim for six years, forcing her to engage in sex acts for money. He also transported or arranged for transportation of the young victims to Detroit-area hotels. Green then made the victims to give him the money they received from their acts of prostitution. He was arrested by Schuette’s Human Trafficking Unit in June 2015 after an extensive investigation conducted by the Department of Homeland Security.
Green was arraigned June 24, 2015 and was released on bond.
