Georgia AG Announces Four Illegal Immigrants Have Been Convicted For Trafficking Minor Female

On Wednesday, Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr announced that four individuals had been convicted for their involvement in trafficking a minor female in Cherokee and Fulton counties. 

Jose Medina Dominguez (age 33), Cesar Juarez Oaxaca (age 39), Ruben Tolentino (age 35) and Cedric Johnson (age 48) were all sentenced to prison. Dominguez, Oaxaca and Tolentino pleaded guilty to soliciting the underage victim for sex. All three are illegal immigrants. Dominguez has also pleaded guilty to statutory rape. Johnson pleaded guilty to selling the underage victim for sex.

“This is a byproduct of unchecked immigration policies, and we will not stand idly by as the safety of our most vulnerable Georgians is put at risk,” said Carr. “We have continued to prioritize the fight against human trafficking in our state, and in just one day we secured the conviction of four men who will now spend years behind bars for buying and selling an underage female for sex. These cases span two counties, multiple defendants and one victim who deserves justice, and we will not rest in our efforts to ensure all those involved are held fully accountable for their actions.”

According to a press release from Carr’s office, the “convictions stem from larger cases involving minor sex trafficking in Cherokee and Fulton counties. These cases were investigated by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s (GBI) Human Exploitation and Trafficking (HEAT) Unit and the Attorney General’s Human Trafficking Prosecution Unit. The following law enforcement entities also assisted in the investigation: Homeland Security Investigations, the Cherokee County District Attorney’s Office, the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office, the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office, the Hall County Sheriff’s Office and the Georgia Department of Public Safety’s SWAT Team.”

“Buying and selling human beings for sex is unconscionable, especially when it is a minor,” said GBI Director Mike Register. “We will continue to work with our partners to investigate these cases and bring these offenders to justice.”
