A 67 year-old Saginaw man who police say gave a woman cocaine in exchange for having sex with a 10 year-old girl has been arrested.

Johnnie L. Griffin was arraigned Monday on charges including first- and second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a person under 13. He is being held in the Saginaw County Jail on $950,000 bond.
    
Griffin was arrested Saturday in Flint after a week-long hunt and faces up to life in prison if convicted.  Not guilty pleas were entered on his behalf.

Police said Griffin had sex with the girl between September and February.
    
The 45 year-old woman who offered the child up for sex has already been charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct and pandering.
