The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has charged Jimmy Forst with aggravated child molestation and child molestation.

According to the GBI, Frost resigned earlier this year from the Dodge County School System, where he spent the past 12 years working as a teacher and coach. He previously worked at schools in Evans County, Candler County, Toombs County and Chatham County.

WTOC can confirm that Frost did work at Calvary Day School in the late '80s through the early '90s. He also worked for the Candler County School System for a year and a half, and left in 2000. Evans County superintendent Joy Collins also told WTOC she briefly remembers Frost's employment with the school system in the '90s.

GBI Special Agent Todd Lawery told WTOC his team had enough probable cause to obtain a warrant for Frost's arrest in Dodge County, and they have also found victims in other areas.

"Some of these may be outside of the statue of limitations. We don't know that for certain because we won't know until we talk to them. I know this is one of those cases where the victims may be embarrassed and a little afraid to come forward, but if they can find the courage to do it, it will certainly help us in prosecuting this case."

Anyone with information about Frost is asked to call the GBI at 478.374.6988.
