14 People in GA Indicted On Charges of Human Trafficking, Using Children For Charity Fraud

On Tuesday, Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr announced the indictment of 14 defendants on 15 charges of Human Trafficking, Racketeering, Criminal Street Gang Activity, Charity Fraud, and Money Laundering.

The investigation uncovered a Georgia charity that touted itself as “sowing America’s future” that was actually a multi-state street gang exploiting children for profit.

“Using children to wheedle money from generous Georgians to finance gang activity is unforgiveable,” GA Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said. “I’m proud that the skills of our professional investigators sparked what became a multiagency crackdown and will mean protecting children and donors from a horrible scam.”

In late 2020, GA investigators and financial attorneys from the Charities Division of the Georgia Secretary of State’s office discovered that alleged gang members were coercing children to go door to door asking for “donations” for an unlicensed charity called “Georgia Peach Youth Club of America Inc.”.

Initial investigation by the Charities Division found that the so-called charity may have had ties to gang activity. They brought their initial findings to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s Human Trafficking Group.

The investigation grew to include other GBI units as well as the Department of Labor, Attorney General Chris Carr’s office and multiple federal agencies.

“As an investigator, it is gratifying for our team members to participate in this investigation with the professional agencies involved and contribute to safeguarding children and the kind people who contribute to legitimate charities,” said Frances Watson, head of the 24-investigator team in the Secretary of State’s office. “We often team up with the GBI and other investigative agencies, and these indictments show how that cooperation pays off for Georgians.”

The Office of the Attorney General is alleging that the defendants in this case operated a labor-intensive human trafficking ring under the guise of a fraudulent charity known as Georgia Peach Youth Club of America Inc. in order to fund criminal street gang activity. The alleged criminal enterprise connected with these crimes is the Nine Trey Bloods, a subset of the United Blood Nation which is a well-known criminal street gang out of Los Angeles.

Attorney General Carr’s Prosecution Division presented evidence to a Cherokee County grand jury, resulting in the indictment of fourteen Defendants on Monday, August 9, 2021.

Specifically, the indictment charges the defendants with the following which, if convicted, can carry the respective penalties:
