Man, Woman Convicted In Cocaine-For-Girl Swap 5-19-2011

A 68-year-old Saginaw man and a 46-year-old woman have been convicted on charges that the woman allowed the man to have sex with a girl in exchange for cocaine and other drugs.
A Saginaw County jury convicted Johnnie L. Griffin and Angela Blackwell on three counts of first-degree Thursday and a single count of second-degree criminal sexual conduct against Blackwell's then-9-year-old granddaughter.
The jury was handed the case Wednesday afternoon and spent about four hours total in deliberations.
The jury also convicted Griffin and Blackwell of separate counts of conspiring to commit both of those crimes and convicted Blackwell of pandering the girl.
Police said Griffin assaulted the girl between September and February. He was arrested in Flint in March.
Jurors also convicted Griffin of second-degree criminal sexual conduct stemming from a friend of one of Blackwell's granddaughters, among other charges.
Griffin, who the Saginaw News reported is a fourth-time habitual offender, could get life in prison when he is sentenced at a future date. A conviction of first-degree criminal sexual conduct with penetration carries a maximum penalty of live in prison.
No sentencing date has yet been set for Blackwell. Both are still lodged in the Saginaw County Jail without bond.
