as an adult
A warrant was issued Tuesday, charging a 13-year-old Harlem boy with aggravated child molestation in an assault on a 4-year-old Augusta girl, authorities said.
The boy, Jacob Staffey, was arrested Friday during a hearing in Columbia County Juvenile Court at the request of Assistant District Attorney Natalie Paine. Juvenile Court Judge Doug Flanagan ordered sheriff’s deputies to take Staffey into custody to face aggravated child molestation charges related to a June incident in Richmond County.
