Two Georgia men were arrested and booked into the Wilson County Jail on Monday as part of an ongoing Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) sex trafficking investigation.

At the request of District Attorney General Tommy Thompson, TBI special agents began investigating a sex trafficking case on August 1, 2012, involving a minor female victim. During the course of the investigation, agents developed information that on Sept. 4, 2011, James Elson Harris, 55, and 43-year-old James Green Jr. engaged in sexual intercourse with the victim.

On Jan. 5, the Wilson County Grand Jury returned indictments charging Harris, of Hogansville, Ga., with six counts of especially aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor, and Green, of LaGrange, Ga., with one count of especially aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor.

Bond for each of the two men was set at $2,500. Harris and Green were both previously indicted in June 2014, when each was charged with aggravated statutory rape stemming from the same incident.
