Back in April, there were reports of an alleged sex and prostitution ring happening on the campus of Fort Valley State University within a sorority. Warrants have just been issued for the arrest of 6 men who were clients of students at the HBCU who were allegedly being pimped out by a university employee.
Alecia Jeanetta Johnson, 48, who was the on-campus gradate advisor to Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc, was suppling the suspected men with women from the sorority so the girls could save money for their sorority fees. She has a warrant out for her arrest as well. Johnson will face 6 counts of pimping and 6 counts of prostitution. Along with conspiracy to commit fiduciary theft stemming from allegations she conspired to take scholarship money from a student in October 2015. Johnson resigned from her job just days after the investigation began in April.
- Ernest Harvey, 47, of Fort Valley, an assistant principal in charge of discipline at Huntington Middle School in Houston County.
- Kenneth Howard, 56, of Fort Valley, the city manager of Hinesville.
- Ryan Jenkins, 35, of Fort Valley.
- Charles Jones, 57, of Fort Valley, a former attorney for Fort Valley State.
- Devontae Little, 26, of Warner Robins.
- Arthur James Nance Jr., 46, of Cordele, the vice chairman of the Crisp County Board of Commissioners and a local pastor and mortician.
All men listed were clients of the prostitution ring, which was being ran on campus between 2017 and early 2018. Each man will be charged with pandering and solicitation of sodomy. They have until Tuesday Oct 30th to turn themselves in.
The investigation started when Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. began its own inquiry into “unauthorized activities and misconduct involving current and former members,” according to a letter it sent to the Fort Valley State sorority chapter. Officials announced in April they were investigating sexual misconduct and hazing at Fort Valley. At the request of the Georgia Attorney General’s Office, the investigation was conducted by the GBI, with assistance from the Macon Judicial Circuit District Attorney’s Office.
