DETROIT (FOX 2) - A 55-year-old Detroit man was arrested and federally charged with sex trafficking announced Acting United States Attorney Saima Mohsin on Friday.

In addition an adult sex trafficking victim and her child were also living at the house. And just like the girls, she was forced to perform sex acts with men at the house.
Giles took the money but gave her a small allowance according to the FBI.
Investigators say the sexual acts happened at Giles' Pembroke residence.
The FBI was first tipped off to the case after getting information that the 17-year-old had run away from home and was living with Giles on April 16, then found that the second teen was also living there.
The victims were lured by Giles this year under the pretense that they could live with him for free. But when they moved in, they found out he had plans to take their pictures and create online ads and pimp them out to perform sex acts
The FBI is currently looking for additional juveniles who may have had contact with Giles. Anyone with information about the juveniles, or with information about Giles’ sex trafficking operation, is asked to contact the FBI at (313) 965-2323.
Giles appeared Friday in federal court and was temporarily detained until his bond hearing on Tuesday, June 1 at 1 p.m.
