Banks County deputies make pandering arrests as part of human trafficking crackdown

Banks County officials are continuing their crackdown on crimes in the Banks Crossing area and their most recent efforts resulted in two pandering arrests.

“Our investigators and deputies recently conducted an undercover operation targeting human trafficking, prostitution and sex crimes at a local business in the Banks Crossing area,” said Banks County Sheriff’s Capt. Carissa McFaddin.

Two men were arrested as a result of the undercover sting.

“Our investigation led to the arrests of Zachery C. Givens, 31, of Rutledge, and Jason Wayne Voyles, 43, of Hull,” McFaddin said.

According to Georgia law, a person commits the offense of pandering when he or she solicits a person to perform an act of prostitution in his or her own behalf or in behalf of a third person, or when he or she knowingly assembles persons at a fixed place for the purpose of being solicited by others to perform an act of prostitution.

Both men were charged with pandering and each was released on a $1,000 bond.
