MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Federal sex-trafficking charges have been filed against 37-year-old Drayon Wren and 20-year-old Robin Wright, both of Milwaukee.

Both Wren and Wright are charged with two counts of sex-trafficking of children and two counts of transporting children across state lines for the purposes of prostitution. Wright is also charge with traveling across state lines to promote a prostitution business.

Each sex-trafficking count carries a minimum penalty of 10 years in prison, and a maximum term of life in prison. The transportation counts carry the same penalty.

The charges involve allegations that in June 2014, Wren and Wright, through false promises and other deception, solicited two minors to travel to Elk Grove, Illinois, to engage in prostitution there at a hotel. At some point after arriving at the hotel, the minors asked to be returned to Milwaukee, at which time there was a disturbance which eventually involved the Elk Grove Police Department. Both minors were safely returned to their homes in Milwaukee.

Wright is currently in federal custody and Wren is currently in state custody awaiting transfer to federal court to answer the filed charges.

The case was investigated by law enforcement officers from the Human Trafficking Task Force, including those from the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Milwaukee Police Department. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Penny L. Coblentz and Joseph R. Wall.

The public is cautioned that criminal charges do not constitute evidence of guilt. An individual is presumed innocent until such time, if ever, that the government establishes his or her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

      Blacks People do get legitimate jobs. There’s always that selected few in every race to make the whole race look bad & get judge by ignorant people like you. Judge the individual not the race if you are going to ignorant. There’s a lot of stories and crimes other races commit that can be stereotyped too but it’s the ignorance of the person trying to judge that makes it about race in the first place. The crime they did was wrong and it should be judge as just that a horrific crime.
