Athens Georgia Man 46-Months In Prison, Sought Sex with Child Online

MACON, GA. – John Wesley Ambrose, 36, from Watkinsville, Georgia, was sentenced to 46-months in in prison, to be followed by ten years of supervised release, after pleading guilty to one count of use of facilities in interstate and foreign commerce to transmit information about a minor. Following his prison term, Ambrose will have to register as a sex offender. There is no parole in the federal system. 

Dubbed ‘Operation End Game’, a multi-agency effort targeting and arresting adult perpetrators in the Athens-area seeking sex with children, Ambrose was busted.

“We will prosecute those caught seeking to sexually exploit and abuse children to the fullest extent of the law,” said U.S. Attorney Charlie Peeler.

“We are fortunate in Georgia to have a strong law enforcement network tracking down online predators and bringing them into custody. I want to thank our partner agencies for their work in Operation End Game.”

“Operation End Game” was a three-day proactive effort centered in Athens, Georgia in July 2019 to arrest adults communicating with children on-line and then traveling to meet them for the purpose of having sex.
