Jury finds man guilty of CSC in sex set up




A jury found Lee Benjamin Craddock, 53, guilty last week of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and several other charges related to a scheme the man cooked up to have sex with a younger relative.

The initial report was that in April 2009, a gunman forced Craddock and his 21-year-old relative off their motorcycle in the Rogue River State game area in Tyrone Township, near 20 Mile and Red Pine Drive, and ordered them to go into the woods, take off their clothes and have sex. When they did as he instructed, the gunman left.

Police later learned that the gunman was Shawn Godfrey, 38, who knew Craddock and told police that Craddock invented the scheme because he wanted to have sex with the girl, but said he didn’t want her to get into trouble with her boyfriend.

The woman did not know Godfrey, and thought the gun was real.

Craddock was convicted on charges of CSC-first degree, conspiracy to commit criminal sexual conduct, incest, and fourth felony offender. He will be sentenced May 18.

Godfrey awaits his own trial on the criminal sexual conduct, conspiracy and habitual offender (fourth felony) charges.
