Johnson allegedly set up sex for the six men that have been charged with various sex crimes, including pandering and solicitation of sodomy.

The list of men includes Ernest Harvey, 47, an assistant principal in charge of discipline at Hungtington Middle School in Houston County, Kenneth Howard, 56 , the city manager of Hinesville, and Charles Jones, 57, a former attorney for Fort Valley State.

The former executive assistant is currently facing six counts of pimping and six counts of prostitution as well as conspiracy to commit fiduciary theft stemming from a 2015 scholarship scandal.

The University released a statement Friday afternoon stating that an investigation was prompted when the allegations of illegal conduct first surface back in April:

“We have consistently and aggressively worked with the University System of Georgia and law enforcement to ensure that anyone who allegedly puts our students at risk is investigated thoroughly and expeditiously and have advocated for the most appropriate standards to be applied. While we cannot comment on the details of an ongoing investigation, we expect anyone who has compromised the trust of our students to be held accountable with all deliberate speed,” it said.

In a letter to the Fort Valley State sorority chapter, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. made known its own inquiry into “unauthorized activities and misconduct involving current and former members.”
