In Michigan, ten new criminal human trafficking cases were filed in federal courts in 2021. Ten defendants were convicted. 100 percent (10) of new defendants were charged with sex trafficking, and zero percent (0) were charged with forced labor. Michigan federal courts ordered two out of ten convicted criminal human trafficking defendants to pay restitution to their victim(s) in 2021, matching the previous year’s rate of twenty percent of convicted human trafficking defendants ordered to pay restitution.

*Each State Report’s findings are derived from data the Human Trafficking Institute compiled for the 2020 Federal Human Trafficking Report. Findings are not a prevalence
estimate of trafficking in the state but instead serve as an objective summary of federal efforts to address human trafficking in that state. The Report does not capture
data from state prosecutions, federal or state civil suits, or unreported human trafficking cases.
