Stacey Abrams' brother-in-law Jimmie Gardner has been arrested on human trafficking allegations. According to Tampa police, Gardner was engaging in s*xual acts with a 16 year old girl and even assaulted her. Gardner reportedly met with the minor at a hotel and invited her to his room. When she arrived, Gardner offered money in exchange for s*x. “The victim initially agreed but later told Gardner that she no longer wanted to engage and he became angry. Gardner advised the victim that she needed to leave his hotel room." "The two got involved in a verbal altercation that escalated to a physical dispute after Gardner placed his hands around the victim’s neck, impeding her breathing." Gardner was convicted in 1987 for the s*xual assault of two women in West Virginia but was exonerated in 2016. Two years after he was released, he married federal judge Leslie Abrams Gardner, the sister of Stacey Abrams.
