From Gordon County Sheriff Mitch Ralston:
On Sept. 20, acting in response to a report of children having been sexually molested, sheriff’s detectives initiated an investigation into the activities of a Reeves Station Road man. Detectives and child advocacy personnel interviewed a number of children and detectives questioned other witnesses.
The investigation concerned events spanning nine months and involving three minors, ages 5 through 11. On Thursday, Sept. 27, detectives arrested Justin Scott Baker, 40, of 1276 Reeves Station Road. Baker surrendered at the Sheriff’s Office.
Detectives had sought Baker several days earlier for questioning but have reason to believe that he traveled out of state to Florida before surrendering.
Baker has been charged with 10 counts, including Aggravated Child Molestation, Child Molestation, Aggravated Sexual Battery, Sexual Battery, and Enticing Minors. He remains in jail pending bond.
