Markus Odon McCormick, 36, was sentenced to serve at least 24 years in state prison following his conviction this month on human trafficking charges. In 2018, police officers conducted a traffic stop which led to an interview with a victim of human trafficking. Fayetteville Police detectives spent three years gathering evidence that resulted in McCormick’s trial. Det. D. Graham had arrested the accused for trafficking two victims for the purpose of sexual servitude. McCormick was found guilty by a jury on two counts of human trafficking, five counts of felony promotion of prostitution, and one count of possession with intent to sell and deliver cocaine.
