Francey Hakes

Atlanta, GA
Francey Hakes was the country’s first National Coordinator for Child Exploitation Prevention and Interdiction, a post appointed by the U.S. Attorney General. She was responsible for creating the inaugural U.S. strategy addressing child sexual exploitation, titled The National Strategy for Child Exploitation Prevention and Interdiction, which was submitted to Congress in August 2010. Hakes oversaw all child exploitation efforts at the Department of Justice, testified before the U.S. Congress and the United States Sentencing Commission, and briefed senior officials at the White House, Congress, and the Department of Justice on child exploitation issues. Prior to this appointment, Hakes was a prosecutor for more than 15 years, serving first as an Assistant District Attorney specializing in crimes against children and then as an Assistant U.S. Attorney specializing in technology-facilitated child sexual exploitation. She is CEO of her own consulting firm, providing advice, counsel and expert witness services to firms, law enforcement, schools, governments, industry, non-profits, Hollywood firms and others on national security and the protection of children. She holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Georgia and a juris doctor from Ohio Northern University College of Law.
