North Georgia: Two arrested, charged with trying to meet minors for sex

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents arrested two men in North Georgia when they tried to meet with minors to have sex last week, according to authorities.

John Eric Cochran, 25, of Chatsworth, Ga., was arrested when he tried to meet with a child and FBI agents were hiding inside the house, FBI spokesman Special Agent Stephen Emmett said in the release.

FBI agents were tipped off to Cochran on the Internet through the FBI’s Northwest Georgia Safe Child Task Force’s undercover unit, Emmett said.

Cochran faces charges of attempted aggravated child molestation and child pornography and is being held at the Murray County Jail, Emmett said.

He said a similar situation handled by undercover officers led to the arrest of 32-year-old Millard Dean Bradley of Dalton, Ga..

Bradley faces charges of attempted aggravated child molestation and child pornography and is being held at the Whitfield County Jail, Emmett said.

It's strange, though, that you never hear any more of these "sting" operation arrests when there are no real children involved, just burly Georgia state troopers. No follow-up story, no indictments, no news reports of probation or plea deals. They just vanish. I don't know what to make of it.
