Molestation indictment on hold

Molestation indictment on hold

DAWSON, GA (WALB) - A Terrell County man accused of rape and child molestation will remain behind bars after the grand jury continued his case. The grand jury heard evidence against 50-year-old Milton Johnson, but delayed a decision on whether to indict him.

Johnson is accused of molesting a young girl, under the age of 16.

Prosecutors say forensic testing hasn't been completed yet and more evidence has to be examined.

Johnson was arrested in October on charges of with aggravated child molestation, rape, and aggravated sodomy.

He was denied bond, but will have another hearing with a superior court judge in two weeks.

The case is expected to go before the grand jury again in June.
