The following press release was issued by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

Wrightsville, GA (March 1, 2021) – On Tuesday, February 9, 2021, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s Child Exploitation and Computer Crimes Unit (CEACC) executed a search warrant at the residence of John Harris Carter, 25, in Wrightsville, Johnson County, GA. An investigation into Carter’s internet activity by the GBI’s CEACC Unit began after a report was received from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) related to the sexual exploitation of children by Carter via the internet. This investigation led to a search warrant of Carter’s residence in Johnson County, GA. As a result of the investigation, Carter was arrested and charged with one count of Distribution of Child Pornography. The GBI was assisted in this investigation by the Wrightsville Police Department and the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office. Carter was booked into the Johnson County Jail.

This investigation is part of the ongoing effort by the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, housed within the GBI’s Child Exploitation and Computer Crimes Unit, to identify those involved in the child pornography trade and the online sexual exploitation of children. The ICAC Program, created by the U.S. Department of Justice, was developed in response to the increasing number of children and teenagers using the internet, the proliferation of child pornography, and the heightened online activity by predators searching for unsupervised contact with underage victims.

Anyone with information about this case or any other cases of child exploitation is asked to contact the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Child Exploitation and Computer Crimes Unit at 404-270-8870. Tips can also be submitted by calling 1-800-597-TIPS(8477), online at https://gbi.georgia.gov/submit-tips-online, or by downloading the See Something, Send Something mobile app.
