A Georgia man who was accused of the brutal rape of a woman he met at a Sandy Springs bar was arrested four days after the alleged incident and now faces several felony charges.
A veteran DeKalb County police officer has been charged with child molestation after police said he showed pornography to a 13-year-old girl and tried to undress her. The 49-year-old man resigned his position with the police department after 18 years on the job. Police said he admitted to the charges, but the man's attorney disputed that, saying the man has not confessed.
