Mableton Man Indicted for Child Exploitation

Two Cobb County men, including a school bus driver and a college instructor, were indicted for separate child pornography offenses.

Two Cobb County men were indicted by a federal grand jury for child pornography charges stemming from their ordering and receiving videos containing child pornography from a foreign company, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. One of the offenders was a school bus driver, and the other one was a college instructor.

Stanley Keith Johnson, 57, of Mableton, is charged with one count of producing child pornography, one count of receiving child pornography, and one count of possessing child pornography. Johnson was a bus driver for Cobb County Public Schools.

In a separate case, Jerry Michael Lanier, 51, of Smyrna, is charged with one count of receiving child pornography and one count of possessing child pornography. Lanier was working as a music instructor at the University of West Georgia.

The following charges and information were presented in court, and provided by United States Attorney Sally Quillian Yates.

  • From November 2010 to April 2011, Johnson placed orders with a foreign company for approximately 180 DVDs containing videos of nude boys between the ages of 8 and 14. Johnson received those videos through the USPS. A search warrant executed in December 2012 revealed that he not only possessed child pornography on his computer, but that he had also produced images of child pornography as far back as May 2004.  Johnson was working as a bus driver for Cobb County Public Schools during all the times listed in the indictment.
  • Between January 2010 and January 2011, Lanier also placed orders with the same foreign company. He ordered and received through the mail approximately 19 DVDs containing child pornography. A search warrant executed at his residence December 2011 revealed that he had numerous videos of child pornography on his computer. Lanier was working as a music instructor at the University of West Georgia when the search warrant was executed.

These cases are being investigated by the United States Postal Inspection Service with assistance from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Cobb County Police Department, and Smyrna Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney Paul R. Jones is prosecuting the cases.

The cases are being brought as part of Project Safe Childhood. In February 2006, the Attorney General launched Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from online exploitation and abuse.
