Columbus Resident Arrested on 2 Counts of Child Exploitation
A 25-year-old Columbus resident was arrested at her home Wednesday on two counts of child exploitation for possession of child pornography, announced Attorney General Jim Hood.
Jamie Tracey was arrested by AG Cybercrime investigators with assistance from the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office after an investigation into suspicious online activity. Tracey was booked into the Lowndes County Adult Correctional Facility.
If convicted on both counts, Tracey faces up to 80 years in prison and $1,0000,000 in fines. A charge is merely an accusation, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
This case will be prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Brandon Ogburn.
