Georgia’s New Human Trafficking Prosecution Unit Results In Conviction Of 27-Year-Old Woman

On Thursday, Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr announced that an investigation led by Georgia’s Human Trafficking Prosecution Unit, which was established in 2019 under Republican Governor Brian Kemp, has resulted in the conviction of Jahaundria Seabron, 27, for trafficking a 16-year-old female in DeKalb County in December 2020. 

Seabron has been sentenced to 30 years, with 18 years to be served in prison. She currently faces separate human trafficking charges in Fulton County in a case resulting from a rescue of a 14-year-old female in February 2021.

“Thanks to the dedicated efforts of our Human Trafficking Prosecution Unit, yet another person is behind bars for trafficking a child,” said Carr. “This outcome is made possible by our investigators, who are proactive in their approach to identifying victims and pursuing all those who engaged in their abuse and exploitation. Our work does not stop here, and we will continue to seek maximum justice for this brave survivor.”

As stated in a press release from Carr’s office, “Jahaundria Seabron pleaded guilty to four counts of Trafficking of Persons for Sexual Servitude in violation of O.C.G.A. § 16-5-46(c), for the following acts:

  • Knowingly transporting a person under the age of 18 years for the purpose of sexual servitude;
  • Knowingly harboring a person under the age of 18 years for the purpose of sexual servitude;
  • Knowingly providing a person under the age of 18 years for the purpose of sexual servitude; and
  • Knowingly benefiting financially from the sexual servitude of a person under the age of 18 years.”
