Seven people are facing jail time due to a scandal that rocked Fort Valley State University. According to The Atlanta-Journal Constitution, Alecia Jeanetta Johnson, 49, allegedly served as a ring leader in the prostitution ring.

Johnson, who served as an executive assistant to the president of Fort Valley State University and previously a graduate adviser to the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, allegedly performed sex acts in exchange for money and helped to provide prostitutes to prominent men in the college community located south of Atlanta.

She has since been charged with six counts of prostitution, three counts of pimping and two counts of solicitation of sodomy. Six men were also indicted on one count each of solicitation of sodomy.

Johnson faces a maximum of up to 12 months in prison and up to a $1,000 fine per count.

The six men who were indicted include Ernest Harvey, 47, Kenneth Howard, 56, Ryan Jenkins, 35, Charles Jones, 57, Arthur James Nance Jr., 46 and Devontae Little, 26.

Following the indictment, AKA leaders withdrew the chapter’s privileges, “pending the outcome of the investigation.”
