Alecia Jeanetta Johnson was charged with six counts of prostitution and three counts of pimping and two counts of solicitation of sodomy on Friday — following a year-long investigation into a prostitution ring at Fort Valley State University.
The 49-year-old former executive assistant to the President and graduate advisor for the campus’ AKA sorority chapter was indicted along with six other men who were indicted on one count each of solicitation of sodomy, as well as two counts each of pandering for sexual acts.

Ernest Harvey, 47; Kenneth Howard, 56; Ryan Jenkins, 35; Charles Jones, 57, Devontae Little, 26, and Arthur James Nance Jr., 46, face up to 12 months incarceration and/or a $5,000 fine, and up to 12 months and up to a $1,000 fine per count for solicitation of sodomy and prostitution.
Jones was reportedly the university’s chief legal counsel until he was fired amid the headline-making controversy.
The district attorney said in a press release on Friday that the charges were “the result of a nearly year-long investigation into illegal conduct related to Fort Valley State University.”
Johnson, who was also a graduate adviser to a prominent black sorority on campus, was accused of being the ringleader of the prostitution operation that rocked the small historically black college located about 100 miles south of Atlanta. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation reportedly worked with the Macon Judicial Circuit District Attorney’s Office and launched an investigation in April 2018, at the request of the Georgia Attorney General’s Office.
