Already in jail, man charged with molestation
Columbia County authorities charged a Martinez man Wednesday with sex crimes against a young girl over several years.
Alton Henry Rau III, 23, of Loblolly Trail, allegedly molested the now 19-year-old victim on numerous occasions when she was between the ages of 6 and 12, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.
The incidents happened at homes in Martinez and Grovetown, according to the report.
Rau is being held in the Columbia County Detention Center without bond, according to jail records.
