Local man charged with child molestation

A McDonough man is behind bars in Henry County, for allegedly behaving in an inappropriate, sexual manner with a child.

Darryl Dewayne Johnson, 43, is charged with child molestation. He is being held in the Henry County Jail on $10,000 bond.

Henry County Police obtained an arrest warrant for the suspect Monday, and Johnson appeared, Tuesday, in magistrate court.

The incident occurred between Nov. 23 and 30, 2009, at Johnson's home in McDonough, according to the warrant. Johnson "did an immoral and indecent act" with a minor by exposing himself to the victim, and making the victim touch him, the warrant revealed.

Henry County Police Capt. Jason Bolton was unable to provide more details on the charge against the suspect, Tuesday.

Johnson was arrested Monday by the Henry County Sheriff's Office.

A preliminary hearing in his case was set for April 13.
