Also in 2011, the Attorney General's Office arrested five residents of Southeast Michigan for conducting a human trafficking operation through a prostitution ring, called "Detroit Pink."  Mustafaa Hassan Muhammad 31, of Detroit; Tara Muhammad 32, of Chesterfield Township; Brooklyn Marie Siebert, 29 of Warren; Rita Jean Jemison 25, of Detroit; and Jason Michael Sherrill, 31, of Detroit are each charged with multiple felonies including Human Trafficking, Pandering, Accepting the Earnings of a Prostitute and Racketeering.

The charges resulted from an extensive investigation conducted by Michigan State Police and the FBI through the Southeast Michigan Crimes Against Children Task Force that revealed human trafficking involving at least one child, as well as forced drug running across the country.

Four of the five defendants pled guilty to human trafficking, served jail sentences and continue to be monitored on probation.  The primary defendant, Mustafaa Muhammad, pled guilty to minor sex trafficking and labor trafficking on August 29, 2013.  He was sentenced to prison for 6-20 years on September 12, 2013.
