Rodney Cleary, Juan Williams

MILWAUKEE — 26-year-old Rodney Cleary of Milwaukee and 30-year-old Juan Williams of Waukesha each face a criminal charge of human trafficking which is  punishable by up to 25 years in prison and $100,000 in fines. Neither of the two are in custody — and warrants have been filed against them.

According to the criminal complaint filed in this case, Town of Brookfield police officers responded to a Motel 6 on October 31, 2015 and found a woman “heavily under the influence of intoxicants.” She was “shaking and visibly terrified.” The woman told police “she had been drugged and sexually assaulted” and that two males “intended to, after they had sexual intercourse with her, have her pose for nude pictures that they could then upload” to a website that is “frequently used by customers to arrange for prostitution-related dates.”

The complaint indicates the victim went through an examination — and evidence was tested. Male DNA in that evidence identified Juan Williams.

The victim told police in the complaint that in August 2015, she was staying at the Women’s Center in downtown Waukesha — and that is where she met Williams and Clearly. They apparently “offered her a place to stay, and offered her money to help her get back on her feet.” But then beginning on September 1, 2015 and roughly through the end of October 2015, the two men “arranged to have (the woman) engage in multiple prostitution-related dates.” The victim in this case told police Williams and Cleary would keep the cash from those transactions.

According to the complaint, the victim told investigators Williams and Cleary “controlled her through fear, intimidation, physical violence, and would control her through the use of drugs.”

Again, neither Williams nor Cleary are in police custody. If you have any information about their location, you’re urged to contact police.
