Quitman man facing molestation charge

THOMASVILLE — A 33-year-old Quitman man was denied bond in a case in which he is accused of molesting a six-year-old girl.

The child was taken to the Archbold Memorial Hospital emergency room after complaining about pain.

The Thomas County Sheriff’s Office was notified, and the girl was taken to The Treehouse Children’s Advocacy Center to be interviewed and to be examined by a nurse trained in incidents of sexual assault.

After the interview, investigators arrested Nicholas Beasley, 108 Camillia Drive, Quitman.

Beasley did not admit molesting the child, said Lt. Tim Watkins, sheriff’s office chief investigator, but evidence gathered in the nurse’s examination, along with the child’s statements, resulted in warrants being issued.

The incident in which Beasley is charged took place Tuesday, Dec. 31, Watkins said. The child was interviewed the next day.

Beasley is charged with aggravated child molestation. Warrants are pending on sodomy and child molestation.

The suspect also is charged with public drunk.

“When we went to pick him up, he was drunk,” the investigator said.

Beasley is being held at the Thomas County Jail.
