Months after a Henry County DJ was accused of molesting a 15-year-old boy, authorities have charged and indicted him in two other cases.
Malcolm Jamal Rhodes, 24, of Hogansville, was indicted Thursday on five counts of child molestation, two counts of sexual battery against a child and one count of enticing a child for indecent purposes, the Henry County District Attorney’s Office said in a news release.
All of the incidents took place between 2018 and 2019. There were three victims, Assistant DA Megan Matteucci told AJC.com.
The investigation into Rhodes began Nov. 12 after a man told police that the DJ molested his son inside their home, authorities said. He was arrested later that month.
He was well-known in the county for working as a DJ at local schools, skating rinks and with church youth groups in the area. Following his arrest, three of the organizations Rhodes worked with told Channel 2 Action News that they severed ties with him.
Anyone with information on the investigation is asked to contact Henry County police at 770-288-8266.
