Church volunteer accused of fondling children

May 27, 2004

(Grovetown-AP) -- Authorities have arrested a former church volunteer from Grovetown in east Georgia on charges that he molested at least three children.

Columbia County Sheriff's Department Steve Morris says authorities arrested 69-year-old Jimmie Lee Mills Tuesday. Authorities had received complaints that the man had fondled two girls, ages ten and eleven. Authorities say at least one of the alleged incidents happened on a bus he drove as a volunteer for Providence Baptist Church.

 Mills posted bond and was arrested again yesterday by Grovetown police on another child molestation charge. Police would not release information about the incident that led to the latest arrest.

The pastor of Providence Baptist in Augusta -- Don Prosser -- confirmed that Mills had attended the church and says he is no longer welcome there.
