THOMAS COUNTY, GA (WALB) – A Thomasville woman remains behind bars Monday night without bond in a child molestation case.

Authorities arrested and charged 20-year old Jazmine Suzanne Edwards with child molestation, aggravated sexual battery, and enticing a child for indecent purposes.

Investigators at the Thomas County Sheriff's Office say she molested a 10-year old child in 2008.

An investigation into the molestation is ongoing.

In a separate case, Thomas County authorities arrested a Pavo man for child molestation Friday afternoon.

32-year old Alan Eugene Steedley is charged with child molestation, aggravated child molestation, enticing a child for indecent purposes and aggravated sodomy.

Authorities say his victim was only 14 years old at the time of the abuse beginning in 2006. Steedley is also being held at the Thomas County Jail.
