Man held for child molestation

Posted June 27, 2005

Thomasville-- A 38 year old man is being held without bond in the Thomas County jail on charges of child molestation.

Investigators say James Gossett had been inappropriately touching a 13 year old girl for about a year. They add that he had also been writing letters to her and keeping a diary about it. The girl's mother went to deputies last week after she became suspicious of Gossett.

In addition to the molestation count, he is also charged with enticing a child for indecent purposes. If convicted, Gossett could spend more than 20 years in prison.
