Alton Henry Rau III, 23, of Loblolly Trail, was charged with child molestation.

He allegedly molested the victim, now 19, on numerous occasions when she was between the ages of 6 and 12, according to a Sheriff’s Office incident report. The incidents happened at homes in Martinez and Grovetown, according to the report.

Rau is being held in the Columbia County Detention Center without bond, according to jail records. He was already being held before the child molestation charge awaiting trial for drug possession and financial transaction card theft that happened in March.

Rau also was arrested in May for possession of a Schedule IV drug and possession of marijuana for having a Valium pill, marijuana, a grinder and a smoking device, according to the report.

So you have him convicted

So you have him convicted based on a newspaper report on charges. And he may very well be guilty. You may know the whole situation. But you didn't say you did. As it stands, you let a description of charges convince you he is guilty. If I could think of an appropriate secular phrase to replace "Heaven help us," I would use it now.

Do less affluent areas have a monopoly on feral behavior?
