JaJa, as our resident lawyer, I will defer to you in trying to fully understand these charges. But is that first-degree sexual assault charge saying that Geddert himself is charged with sexually assaulted a minor? rather than “just” knowing and covering up the assaults Nassar carried out?The human trafficking charges are related to the forced labor resulting in injury to 19 people, six of whom are minors. One of the people has two charges connected to them.
The trafficking charges all are alleged to have occurred between 2008 and 2018. Geddert could face up to 20 years in prison for the six charges involving minors and up to 15 for the other 14 charges.
The two sexual assault charges involve a 13 to 16-year-old person. The victim is the same in both charges. First-degree sexual assault can carry a sentence of up to life in prison.
Geddert’s charge of racketeering stems from the trafficking charges and allege he trafficked 15 of the victims, known only by their initials, for financial gain. The listed address for racketeering is 9410 Davis Highway in Dimondale, which is the building formerly used by Twistars.
