An 18-year-old Westminster Schools of Augusta student was arrested Thursday on charges he had sex with a 13-year-old student on school property on several occasions.
Richmond County sheriff’s deputies charged Jeremiah Coleman with aggravated child molestation, according to Capt. Scott Peebles.
Peebles said the sexual activity occurred over “a period of time” before school officials became aware and contacted police.
Under Georgia law, a 13-year-old can not consent to a sexual relationship.
Despite the charge, Peebles said there is no indication of physical force.
