Johnathon Kelly, 31, drove the teen from her home in Birmingham in November 2012 and advertised her on a website, according to a press release. The prostitution took place at various hotels in Norcross, Augusta, Bossier City, La., Dallas, Texas, and elsewhere.
Officers found the teen Jan. 9, 2013 during a traffic stop on Interstate 20 in Greene County. Kelly was stopped for speeding. A Georgia State Patrol officer and a local deputy recently trained in spotting human trafficking victims became suspicious because the teen, identified as “R.W.,” appeared frightened of Kelly.
