He was booked on a single charge of Pimping, a misdemeanor.

Investigation, Arrests Latest in CCSOs Push to Fight Human Trafficking

The Coweta County Sheriff’s Office and their Crime Suppression Unit have joined other local counties and the Atlanta region as a whole in focusing on identifying and combating Human Trafficking. Prostitution and other sex crimes are the sad and stark reality for many victims of Human Trafficking, investigating and prosecuting these crimes can often lead to the identification and reunification of these victims.

CSU Investigator Leslie Cash, who joined the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office from the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office and was recognized in July at the Georgia Sheriff’s Association Summer Conference for Professional Contribution, has been a force to be reckoned with when it comes to Human Trafficking. 

A year after joing the CCSO in the patrol division, Cash was promoted to an Investigator in the Crime Suppression Unit in May 2020, in the short 2 years since that promotion, Inv. Cash has lead 6 complex Human Trafficking investigations, resulting in 105 arrests and the identification and release of 7 victims of Human Trafficking.
