Atlanta – Special Agent in Charge (SAC) Gregory Jones, FBI Atlanta, announces the arrest of 42 year-old RUSSELL EDWARD WORSHAM. Worsham was arrested by Agents of the FBI’s Safe Child Task Force (SCTF) on Friday afternoon, January 23, 2009, for using an interstate telecommunications device (a computer) to entice a minor to engage in sexual activity. A criminal complaint issued in the Northern District of Georgia charges Worsham with violating Title 18, United States Code, Section 2422(b).
Worsham, an appliance repairman from Macon, Georgia, allegedly engaged in a series of internet conversations with what he believed was the mother of girl under the age of 10. During these conversations, Worsham allegedly made plans with the mother to travel from Macon to Atlanta in order to engage in sexual behavior with the child. In fact, both the mother and daughter were fictional, and Worsham was having the aforementioned conversations with an SCTF Agent acting in an undercover capacity. Worsham was arrested without incident upon his arrival at the agreed upon meeting place.
The public is reminded that all persons are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
