Two Men Convicted of Travelling to Murray County to Have Sex with a Minor
Two separate juries have convicted two men in separate cases - where both were looking for the same thing in Murray County, Georgia: sex with a minor.

One of the men is from Ooltewah. The other is from Snellville Georgia.

On Wednesday, a judge sentenced the second man - 49-year-old Sunil Shamji Jungiwalla (pictured left) - to three years in prison and seven years probation. He was convicted last month for criminal attempt to commit aggravated child molestation, criminal attempt to commit child molestation and computer and electronic child exploitation following his conviction on those charges last month. 

Jungiwalla is a citizen of India and will likely be deported upon his release from prison.
 
Meanwhile the Oolteah man, 54 year old Michael Robert Doan (pictured right), still awaits sentencing for his conviction, which will happen on August 27th. Doan was also convicted last month by a jury of criminal attempt to commit aggravated child molestation, criminal attempt to commit child molestation and computer and electronic child exploitation, all felonies. 

Both cases were made by Detective Brett Morrison of the Murray County Sheriff's Office in his capacity as a member of the Northwest Georgia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. 

Doan spent two days talking with Detective Morrison online. Morrison was posing as the step-father of two underage step-daughters. He set up a meeting with Doan back in January of 2012. Doan purchased and took Cialis, an erectile dysfunction medication shortly before the pre-arranged meeting where he was arrested. Once in custody, he admitted to the crimes.
 
Jungiwalla came to Murray County for the same purpose in July of 2011 after a series of graphic e-mails, text messages and recorded phone calls with Detective Morrison, this time posing as the uncle of an underage niece.  Jungiwalla brough alcohol for his intended victim to the meeting location in Murray County where police arrested him and like Doan, admitted to the crime.
 
Both men presented entrapment defenses through their attorneys, Dan Ripper of Chattanooga for Doan and Charles Brandt of Atlanta for Jungiwalla.  The entrapment defense asserts that the idea for the crime originated with law enforcement and that the perpetrator was coerced into committing, or in this case, attempting to commit the crime by undue pressure and influence from the detective. 

Anticipating this defense, Detective Morrison and other members of the task force used several techniques to document their communication - including giving the suspect more than one opportunity to withdraw from the arrangement before any arrest is made. 

Neither jury believed that the offenders were entrapped.
 
The cases took longer than normal to bring to trial because Detective Morrison, the primary witness in both cases, was serving the country overseas in Afghanistan. Two Men Convicted of Travelling to Murray County to Have Sex with a Minor
