A Grovetown man arrested last week for sexual misconduct against a 14-year-old girl at an Evans park was charged Friday with additional sex crimes against a different girl.

Police charged Landon “Dock” Norman, 38, of the 1900 block of Long Creek Falls, with aggravated sodomy, aggravated sexual battery and rape after a 16-year-old girl reported in April that he fondled and performed oral sex on her, according to an e-mail sent by Columbia County sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris.

Norman initially was arrested Oct. 24 for inappropriately touching a 14-year-old girl at Riverside Park, where her brother and Norman’s son played baseball together, as reported in a sheriff’s office incident report.

The girl’s mother said Norman started talking with her daughter at the park while the teams practiced. She said Norman added the teen as a friend on Facebook and later made inappropriate comments and sent nude pictures to her e-mail address.

During a practice at Riverside Park in June, Norman took the girl to a secluded area and told her to get into his vehicle, where he made advances toward her and molested her, police said. He threatened to kill her if she told anybody about the incident and continued to touch her until he left to pick his son up from the park, they said.

In that incident, he was charged with aggravated child molestation, enticing a child for indecent purposes and five counts of electronically distributing obscene material to a minor.

Norman is being held at the Columbia County Detention Center without bond.

I pray my children never hid

I pray my children never hid anything like that from me and that some sick individual ever put their hands on them. Sometimes I don't understand why these people are even alive. That may be cold, but I've seen childrens devastation at the hands of people who truly did NOT need children.

You know, it's not just the

You know, it's not just the girls who were victimized here. Think about this jerk's own son! I mean, this poor kid now has to live with the fact that his Dad is a creep with a sick problem. He must also be sitting at home with a myriad of emotions running through him! This was not only a sick thing to occur, it was a purely selfish act.

JMO, "people" that molest

JMO, "people" that molest children don't give two cents about their children, their wives, their victims- it's all about THEM and their "needs".

Riverman1, 16-6-3 G ***

Riverman1,

16-6-3 G *** CODE SECTION *** 10/15/99
16-6-3.
(a) A person commits the offense of statutory rape when he or she engages in sexual intercourse with any person under the age of 16 years and not his or her spouse, provided that no conviction shall be had for this offense on the unsupported testimony of the victim.

There is also some odd rules about age difference too, but I didn't see them and didn't want to google further to find them.

Brad, that's what I'm getting

Brad, that's what I'm getting at. Thanks. It doesn't apply in this case, but a 40 year old guy could legally have intercourse with a 16 year old girl. Doesn't seem right does it?

That has always been a

That has always been a mystery to me too RM. A 40 yo and a 16 yo is just so wrong that has to be something illegal about it. By the same token, if one partner is 16 and a day while the other is 15 and 364 days, it seems wrong that it is a crime.

Black guy commits a crime the

Black guy commits a crime the comments are "they, them, thugs". White guy commits one its "he and him" Gotta love it the ignorance you only find in America. I bet this guy does less time than your petty $10 crack dealer. That being said, i dont support any crimes. Just noting the obvious.
