A sexual assault on undercover children by state and local authorities in Georgia resulted in the arrest of six men, including a primary school teacher.

Floyd County Police Organized “Operation Safe Christmas” To Target Online Predators Who Communicate With Children Over The Internet “Then Travel To Meet Them For The Purpose Of Having Sex,” A Press Release Says .

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the Georgia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force assisted in the investigation.

The operation lasted for three days, starting December 15, authorities said. Those arrested were between 27 and 46 years old and believed they were traveling to meet a minor for “prior” sexual activity.

“During the multi-day operation, investigators had more than 200 interactions with subjects on various social networks or Internet platforms,” ​​the statement said. “Many of them were exchanges where the subject made contact with someone they believed to be underage and turned the conversation towards sex. “

In some cases, investigators said the subjects introduced obscene content or encouraged the person they believed to be a child to send nude photos and other pornographic images.

The men arrested are:

  • Jeremy Bowman, 44, an elementary school teacher charged with child sexual exploitation, obscene Internet contact with a child and criminal attempt to commit a crime. Bowman is listed as a second grade teacher with the Chattooga County School District.
  • Jimmy Bowen, 46, a general laborer charged with electronically providing obscene material to a minor, obscene Internet contact with a child, sexually explicit conduct by a minor and other counts.
  • Jeff White, 27, a construction worker charged with electronically providing obscene material to a minor, obscene Internet contact with a child, sexual exploitation of children, aggravated assault of an officer and several other charges.
  • Norman Gentry, 31, charged with obscene Internet contact with a child, criminal attempt to commit a crime and use of a computer service to seduce, solicit, entice or incite to commit an illegal act.
  • Adam Broadrick, 40, charged with sexual exploitation of children, obscene Internet contact with a child, felony attempt to commit a crime and other charges.
  • Jeovani Ortega, 31, charged with obscene Internet contact with a child and criminal attempt to commit a crime.

Investigators said that while some websites are billed as adults-only, “it is not uncommon for law enforcement to deal with cases in which children access these sites, build profiles claiming to be older. older people, then find themselves vulnerable to victimization, harassment, blackmail and assault. “

The investigation is ongoing and police have said additional charges and arrests are possible.
