Attorney general plugs campaign to uncover child sex abusers

Posted: Updated:

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens is promoting a new statewide campaign to "unmask" those who seek children for sex.

The Augusta Chronicle reports (bit.ly/1QHhXKm) that Olens recently unveiled details of the initiative, which targets people who try to buy children for sex.

The attorney general discussed the campaign at a recent a Metro Chamber of Commerce breakfast in Augusta.

Part of the campaign involves a public service advertisement depicting ordinary-looking men seeking sex with minors. It concludes by warning that the attorney general "knows who you are."

Olens told the Augusta audience that it is the buyers who create the demand for sex trafficking.
