An Inkster man has been convicted of running a prostitution ring across Oakland, Macomb and Wayne counties, Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette announced Tuesday.

Jahan Satati Green 38, was found guilty of two counts of prostitution/transporting a person, two counts of prostitution/accepting earnings and one count of criminal enterprises — conducting.

Because of Green’s prior record, he will be sentenced as a third-felony offender, which doubles the maximum allowed sentence of 20 years to up to 40 years, officials said.

Green was arrested in June 2015 by Schuette’s Human Trafficking Unit following an investigation by the Department of Homeland Security.

He was accused of orchestrating an online “escort” operation beginning in 2006. Officials said Green prostituted and assaulted two victims in particular, assaulting one young victim for six years and forcing her to engage in sex acts for money.

Green also transported or arranged transportation for the young victims to hotels in Metro Detroit. He would make his victims give him the money they received for their prostitution acts, officials said.

“Prostitution continues to be an issue I am dedicated to fighting in our state,” Schuette said in a statement Tuesday. “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 is scheduled to be sentenced April 11 in Wayne County Circuit Court before visiting Judge Michael Callahan.
