Augusta waterworks employee indicted on child molestation charges

Brett Bennie Langham

An outspoken Augusta water works employee and local Republican party official was recently indicted on sex abuse charges by a Columbia County grand jury.

Brett Bennie Langham, 33, was indicted Feb. 13 on aggravated sexual battery and child molestation charges in connection with a November incident involving a child younger than 16, according to the indictment.

Langham, who goes by "B.B.," served as a whistleblower in 2010 allegations of time card fraud in the water department, where he works as a water treatment plant operator. In August, Langham, a district representative for the Richmond County Republican Party, pleaded publicly with the Augusta Commission to compensate his family for flood damage in the Hollywood subdivision.

Langham, who was arrested Feb. 21, has a bond hearing Friday.
