Ypsilanti man found guilty of enslaving, abusing 4 West African children
An Ypsilanti man was found guilty Tuesday of enslaving and abusing four West African children from Togo after sneaking them into the country, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Jean-Claude "Kodjo" Toviave is facing up to 20 years in prison following Tuesday's verdict on four counts of forced labor in a federal court in Detroit. Toviave is a former University of Michigan janitor and part-time tennis instructor, according to the Free Press.
Toviave, a native of Togo, brought the four children into the U.S. and gave them fake passports with false information, while claiming they were his own biological children, the story said.
