Following his prison term, Ambrose will have to register as a sex offender.   There is no parole in the federal system.

“Operation End Game” was a three-day proactive effort centered in Athens, Georgia in July 2019 to arrest adults communicating with children on-line and then traveling to meet them for the purpose of having sex.
