Child Molesting Charges

A man is in the Henry County Jail for allegedly molesting a four-year-old boy.

This past July, a citizen reported that her ex-boyfriend had sexually abused her four year old son.

He was charged with sodomy first degree, aggravated child abuse, and three counts of sexual abuse first degree.

Officials arrested Blankenship in Clopton on March 4.

Blankenship is currently in the Henry County Jail under a $500,000 bond.
