Teen charged with sexual battery

THOMASVILLE — A grandmother detected different behavior in her eight-year-old granddaughter and brought it to the attention of the child’s mother.

Late Wednesday afternoon, the mother told Thomasville police the girl had been molested.

Detectives met with the mother and child. Interviews began immediately.

“Based on interviews and information from the mother and child and results of an examination, it was determined she had been molested,” said Lt. Eric Hampton, Thomasville Police Department public information officer.

The investigation led to Aquavion Kimmons, 18, 512 E. Webster St., who is charged with sexual battery against a child under 16.

“The incident happened sometime over the Christmas holidays,” Hampton said.

The activity took place at a Thomasville residence.

Kimmons, a Thomasville High School student, was released from the Thomas County Jail on a $1,100 bond.
