Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr has announced that 28-year-old Trayon Moore of Stone Mountain, has been convicted and sentenced to 25 years for trafficking a 16 year old out of a hotel in Tucker, Georgia, in February 2020.

The teen was recovered by the Attorney General’s Human Trafficking Prosecution Unit in partnership with the U.S. Marshals Service and the DeKalb County Police Department. At the time of her recovery, she had been missing from the Cedartown area for approximately six weeks.

“Our Human Trafficking Prosecution Unit continues to hold accountable those who abuse and exploit our children for sex,” said Carr. “With each new conviction, we’re sending a strong message to buyers and sellers that you will be identified and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. We will never stop fighting to end human trafficking in our state.”

The first 15 years of the 25 year sentence will be served in prison and the remainder on strict probation. Moore is also required to register as a sex offender.

The case was investigated by the Attorney General’s Human Trafficking Prosecution Unit and the DeKalb County Police Department.
