Miami (February 24, 2022) – Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle and Miami Springs Police Chief Armando Guzman announce the arrest of 32-year-old Junet Infante-Madruga for her alleged involvement in an attempt to have a 19-year-old Human Trafficking victim change her statements made to police and to destroy possible electronic evidence. Infante-Madruga’s recorded jail telephone conversations with Human Trafficking defendant Raul Antonio Jimenez-Rodriguez outlined attempts to destroy potential evidence against Jimenez-Rodriguez and contained instructions on how to intimidate the trafficking victim into recanting her previous statements by threatening her family.

“Witness tampering is always an attempt to undermine justice by corrupting our legal system,” said State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle. “Those who would hope to undercut a legitimate search for the facts are only commenting on their own lack of integrity.”

The genesis of Infante-Madruga’s alleged activities relate to the January 2022 arrest of 40-year-old Raul Antonio Jimenez-Rodriguez and 30-year-old Grettel Caceres-Crego, who are both being charged with:

• 1 count – Human Trafficking
• 1 count – Unlawful Use of a Two-Way Communications Device.

Jimenez-Rodriguez is also being charged with:

• 1 count – Deriving Support from the Proceeds of Prostitution
• 1 count – Directing Another to a Place of Prostitution
• 1 count – Renting a Space for the use of Prostitution

Miami Springs Police Chief Armando Guzman commented: “The Miami Springs Police Department is committed to its continued partnership with Miami Dade State Attorney’s Human Trafficking Task to combat Human Trafficking and Sexual Exploitation of victims as well as any attempt to intimidate, coerce or tamper with any evidence, witness or victim.”
