T'ville man accused of molesting three young girls


A suspected child molester is in jail accused of inappropriately touching at least three young girls.

59-year old Jimmy Martin was arrested at his Thomasville home and remains in the Thomas County Jail.

Investigators say an adult overheard a conversation between children aged three, six, and eight.

They were then interviewed at The Treehouse Children's Advocacy Center. And they said Martin molested them.

Investigators are trying to find out if there are other victims. 

"There was three kids in the household at the time. There has also been some accusations made possibly involving other children in the neighborhood and we are doing follow up investigations with that at this time," said Lt. Tim Watkins.

Martin is charged with aggravated child molestation and aggravated sodomy.

He was denied bond.
