Top Pentagon Official Arrested in Human Trafficking Sting

The number of corrupt officials in this administration is shocking, but the latest charges that were announced are beyond worrisome.

It was announced this week that a top Pentagon administrator has been arrested in relation to a human trafficking sting operation in Georgia.

Stephen Francis Hovanic, 64, was arrested on Nov. 15 on suspicion of pandering charges.


In all, 26 people were arrested during the sting operation, where investigators found six women who were the victims of a human trafficking operation.

Sgt. Toby Nix of the local sheriff’s office stated that all of the women had been rescued from the operation and were then taken to a safe house.

He added that is "where they will receive the help they need to move forward from the heinous crime of human trafficking.”

Of the 26 arrested, there were 12 that were arrested for prostitution, four for pimping, and 10 for pandering, which is why Hovanic was arrested.

Those arrested for “pimping” are expected to be charged with human trafficking.

There are an additional three suspects that remain under investigation for drug and human trafficking charges.

The sad reality of this is that Hovanic is a high-ranking official in the Department of Defense Education Activity (DODEA) Americas division.

This is the department that oversees the elementary education of military families, making this the second official in that DoD that has been tied to a controversy.

If you recall, the other official was outed for having been pushing woke teaching materials on students.

A DODEA spokesperson stated, “We are aware of an alleged incident involving a DoDEA employee in the Americas Region. As there are ongoing legal processes, it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time. Any questions regarding the incident should be directed to the local law enforcement agency involved.”

Hovanic is reportedly now on leave.
