Atlanta lawyer jailed in Cherokee for allegedly paying teen for sex

An Atlanta lawyer was jailed last Tuesday when the Cherokee Sheriff’s Office charged him with trafficking a person for sexual servitude and interference with custody, authorities said.

According to sheriff’s office spokesman Capt. Jay Baker and court records:

Enan Eliot Stillman, 43, of Atlanta turned himself in at the Cherokee County jail last Tuesday night.

The arrest comes following an investigation into a domestic dispute on Dec. 16 where allegations were made that a 16-year-old girl had been picked up at a local high school by Stillman and then taken to a Canton hotel where Stillman paid the juvenile $500 for sex.

“Although 16 is the age of consent in Georgia, providing money, food, drugs or shelter in exchange for sex to a person under the age of 18 is considered sex trafficking,” Baker said. The teen and Stillman met online, he said.

Stillman remained in custody at the Cherokee County jail without bond Wednesday morning.

Stillman is a Chamblee-based attorney specializing in the areas of transportation and logistics, according to the professional profile on his law firm’s website.
