Rincon man, woman jailed on child molestation charges

EFFINGHAM COUNTY, GA (WTOC) - Two Rincon adults are sitting behind bars at the Effingham County Jail, facing felony charges for child molestation.

Both were arrested Friday night. According to the police department, the victim is very young, not even school-aged.

Police say 32-year-old Alvin Marcus Gober is charged with rape, child molestation, and cruelty to children, and 37-year-old Nancy Josephine Jones is also charged with child molestation and cruelty to children.

Officials said a family member was watching the child for the weekend. During bath time, the child revealed that something was wrong. That’s when the family member took the child to the hospital. The hospital later called police.

“These are some of the most difficult cases for us to deal with. Anything dealing with children, young juveniles, young adults, people who haven’t even started their lives and people who rely on someone to take care of them and raise them, and people that they trust," said Officer Robert Lipovsky, Rincon PD.
