ALBANY, GA (WALB) –A Rochelle Police officer is charged with having sex with a 14-year old girl. He's not charged with rape. Investigators say the sex was consensual.
But because of the girl's age, Officer Jason Parks is charged with child molestation. The 25-year old Parks surrendered to the GBI last Tuesday.
He's now out on 20,000 dollars bond. Parks, who'd been a Rochelle officer since May, has been fired.
