Man Uses His Four Wives And Seven Children For Sex Trafficking And Pornography

share on:

During a recent raid at a home in Detroit, police found ‘a woman chained to a stripper pole, a man with his four wives and child pornography photos’.

Ryon Travis had been raided a first time where police recovered and seized two cell phones containing child pornography belonging to him, according to his wives. The second raid uncovered the prior mentioned discoveries.

“On the phones were pornographic images of children younger than 12, including multiple images of an adult male having sex with a young girl while she was lying on a distinctive blue and white sheet. A sheet with that same description was seized from the house that day”, a court heard.

While previously facing child porn charges, Travis’s sex-slavery ring has added to his charges.

Travis is accused of “enslaving women, selling them for sex on the Internet and hurting children by taking sexually explicit photos of them and sharing them with others”.

Prior to apprehending Travis as a sex-trafficker, the 32 year-old was being investigated by West Bloomfield police on identity-theft crimes.

They would eventually uncover a sex-slavery/trafficking sting.

His case turned to something more gargantuan when his home was raided by Detroit suburban police department only to find a woman chained by the neck to a stripper pole in the living room of his house.

When police asked why the woman was chained, he said he was “about to get freaky with her”.

Federal court documents described Travis’s methods: ‘The man advertised women on the Internet, offering them for sex. Men would show up at his house and pick which one they liked to sleep there or leave with. But they paid the homeowner first — in cash’.

The suspect who is an unemployed Detroit man with seven children is also accused by the chained-woman of taking her to the bank every month when her $700 Social Security disability check arrived, making her cash the check and then stealing the money from her.

She also said he has been beaten on many occasions over the two year period she has been there.

Court records note none of his children is in his custody and the jobless man also has four women he claims are his wives.

Travis appeared in the U.S District Court on Monday; where he was handcuffed, had belly chains and was also in shackles. He pleaded ‘not guilty’ at his arraignment.

U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade told the Free Press:

“Sex trafficking occurs all around us, and the victims are sometimes hiding in plain sight. Traffickers go to great lengths to keep their victims quiet. 

The victims often feel powerless to flee because the trafficker exerts power over them — physical violence, threats, drugs, fear of arrest —  or even shame.

But the public — perhaps more than anyone else — can help spot these victims, authorities stress, noting common places for human traffickers include construction sites, restaurants, elder care centers, nail salons, agricultural fields, and hotels”.

Travis is being charged with sex trafficking by force, fraud or coercion, and producing, possessing and transporting child pornography.

If convicted, he faces up to life in prison, or a minimum of 15 years, FreeP asserts.

During his detention hearing on March 23 the judge was having a hard time deciding whether to ‘release Travis on bond or lock him up pending trial’.

Travis requested his lawyer be dismissed saying: “It is against my religion to be represented by someone of another nation, so I may as well represent myself. I’m a natural-born human of the American land. I choose not to do business with this court. I ask that this case be dismissed.”

Magistrate Judge Mona Majzoub told the defendant “Your request is denied” while ordering his detention at the request of the prosecution.

Majzoub said: “You are a danger to children. You are a danger to women. And you are a danger to people who are helpless in your presence. The weight of the evidence against you is strong”.

It’s unknown if he is the biological father to the all or any of the children or a legal husband to the women.
