The FBI has arrested a Marietta man for forcing an underage girl into prostitution. Sly Deon Sampson is charged with four felonies including exploitation of children.
Sampson’s arrest at a Marietta hotel is the latest by the Metropolitan Atlanta Child Exploitation Task Force, or MATCH. The task force works with the Atlanta Police Department and other agencies to target the sex trade.
As JJIE reported, the Georgia Demand Study, commissioned by A Future. Not a Past., showed that more than 7,000 men pay for sex with underage girls every month. The Atlanta Women’s Foundation and A Future. Not a Past. will host a town hall meeting on February 4 to discuss ways to stop child prostitution by eliminating the demand.
