“The circumstances of this case exemplifies the importance of the state’s priority in addressing the problem of child sex trafficking in Georgia,” GBI Director Vernon Keenan said.
Kelly was arrested and the GBI charged him with one count of trafficking of persons for sexual servitude, Bankhead said. Kelly is facing additional charges by the Georgia State Patrol for driving while intoxicated (narcotics), possession of marijuana and speeding. The state trooper also determined that Kelly had an outstanding warrant from Norcross police for failure to appear.
The FBI is assisting with the investigation, along with the Taliaferro County Sheriff’s Office.
