Fort Valley – An indictment was returned this week charging seven defendants in a Peach County prostitution case. The case is a result of a nearly year-long investigation into illegal conduct related to Fort Valley State University.

Each defendant is presumed to be innocent unless and until he/she is proven guilty in a court of law.

According to the indictment:

Ernest Harvey, 47, of Kathleen; Kenneth Howard, 57, of Riceboro; Ryan Jenkins, 32, of Albany; Charles Jones, 58, of Fort Valley; Devontae Little, 26, of Warner Robins; and Arthur James Nance Jr., 46, of Cordele, each are charged with one count of solicitation of sodomy and two counts of pandering stemming from conduct alleged to have occurred in 2017 and 2018.

Former Fort Valley State University executive assistant to the president Alecia Jeanetta Johnson, 49, of Fort Valley, is charged with six counts of prostitution, three counts of pimping and two counts of solicitation of sodomy on allegations she performed sex acts in exchange for money and arranged to provide another prostitute for the men.
