A plea deal appears to be pending for one of three people indicted in an alleged sex trafficking ring in the Detroit subway.
Records filed with the Oakland County Circuit Court show that a plea / settlement is being worked out for Chrystal Forgays, 41, of Warren who faces human trafficking charges, of prostitution and other charges. His next court appearance is scheduled for June 24 before Judge Martha Anderson.
Meanwhile, the other two defendants in related cases, Lavonte Sampson and Carl Perkins, await a preliminary hearing, scheduled for July 28, before Judge Keith Hunt of the 43rd Madison Heights District Court. They too face multiple crimes linked to the alleged criminal network.
The charges against the three are based on allegations resulting from a months-long investigation that began last October after authorities received anonymous information about alleged prostitution in Madison Heights. Authorities say they discovered a human trafficking business operating across metropolitan Detroit, including Oakland County, and connected Forgays, Sampson and Perkins there.
Forgays and Sampson were put in the Oakland County Jail in February. Perkins was at large for weeks after the arrest of the other two, but was subsequently jailed on April 20.
Forgays’ case went to higher court after it waived its right to a preliminary examination.
