The brother-in-law of former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams was arrested Friday morning and faces human trafficking charges.
Authorities arrested Jimmie Gardener, 57, after he reportedly attacked a 16-year-old for refusing to have sex, per the Tampa Police Department.
“Around 1:43 a.m., TPD says Gardener invited the victim to his room at Renaissance Hotel at International Plaza, and she accepted the invitation,” FOX 13 Tampa Bay reports.
“The victim told police she initially agreed to take money in exchange for sex acts but later told Gardner that she no longer wanted to engage, and he became angry,” the outlet added.
