By LeiLani Golden - bio | email

THOMAS COUNTY, GA (WALB) –A Thomas County man already in jail on one charge now faces two child molestation charges.

Two girls under the age of 12 told authorities 24-year old Edward Rashawn Jenkins touched them inappropriately.

Jenkins was arrested Tuesday night for probation violation on a cocaine possession conviction but now faces two additional charges of child molestation after the girls were interviewed Wednesday.

He remains behind bars at the Thomas County Jail and could face even more charges as the investigation continues.
