ATLANTA — A man has been sentenced to life in jail without the possibility of parole, plus 75, for luring a woman to Atlanta and then selling her for sex. Christopher Jackson, 56, was convicted on multiple counts of assault, rape, kidnapping and other charges by a Fulton County Superior Court.
In the summer of 2017, Jackson met a 33-year-old woman on social media and began to have an online relationship with her. The woman believed she was in a serious romantic relationship with Jackson, and the two communicated frequently via text and social media. On September 9, 2017, Jackson invited the woman to visit him in Atlanta. The woman agreed and traveled to Atlanta via bus. When she arrived, Jackson greeted her and called for a taxi cab, which the woman thought was strange because the defendant had promised to buy her a BMW and present her with the car upon arrival in Atlanta.
