Magnolia Sex Offender Pleads Guilty To New Charges

A Magnolia man has pleaded guilty to two counts of Unlawful Sexual Conduct Against a Child and two counts of Human Trafficking a Minor, officials said last week. George Curtis, 31, was arrested following an investigation that found that he, while serving as the photographer for an illicit photoshoot prearranged on social media, repeatedly made unwanted sexual contact with the victim, eventually raping her and uploading footage of the assault to the internet 52 times, advertising the victim for sexual services. The convictions are Class B Felonies and Curtis faces a minimum of 12 years in prison to a maximum of 100 years in prison at sentencing.

Curtis is currently a Tier 2 sex offender following a 2013 conviction for Unlawful Sexual Contact Second Degree. 

This conviction was secured by DOJ Human Trafficking Unit Deputy Attorneys General Erik Towne, Michael Cooksey, and Eric Zubrow with the assistance of DOJ Social Worker Rebecca Scott, and DOJ Paralegal Alexandra Spedden following an investigation led by Detectives Michael Weinstein and Susan Carbine of the Delaware State Police, Troop 3, and the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

Anyone who suspects human trafficking may be occurring should contact the National Human Trafficking Hotline at (888) 373-7888, or call 911 if someone may be in imminent danger.
