Warrants issued in Bulloch Co. child molestation

BULLOCH CO., GA (WTOC) -

A man who is incarcerated in Effingham County faces new child molestation charges out of Bulloch County.

Investigators with the Bulloch County Sheriff's Office were notified on June 23 about a child molestation that occurred at a Statesboro home between July and October 2012.

The 9-year-old girl was interviewed by investigators. It was determined that the offender Robert Jonathan Hart is incarcerated in Effingham County on unrelated child molestation charges, according to the BCSO.

Warrants were issued for Hart in Bulloch County on charges of aggravated child molestation and aggravated sodomy.

Hart was charged by the Bulloch County Sheriff's Office in 2005 with child molestation and in 2007 with failure to register as a sex offender. He was sentenced for both incidents and paroled from the custody of the Georgia Dept. of Corrections in 2011.
