More than two dozen were arrested on November 15 in a two-day human trafficking sting operation coordinated by the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office.
Among those arrested was Steven Francis Hovanic, a senior Pentagon administrator overseeing school systems in America.
Hovanic, 64, was charged with suspicion of pandering.
Eva Tedder, administrator for the Coweta County Sheriff’s Department, told the Daily Caller that Hovanic works for the Department of Defense (DOD) located in Peachtree City, Georgia, where the Department of Defense Education Activity’s (DODEA) Americas division is located.
The DODEA is embroiled in controversies related to advocating woke ideology and staff conduct issues.
Rep. Matt Gaetz has called the agency’s conduct into question.
The Daily Caller reported that the two-day sting operation was designed to locate victims of human trafficking. According to the Newnan Times-Herald, six female victims were rescued in the operation.
Hovanic was one of 25 arrested on charges including drug possession, pandering, prostitution and pimping, according to the sheriff’s dept. press release.
The DODEA has not responded to requests for comment.
