He continued to message them, and they met up twice more at his apartment, where the same inappropriate and illegal acts took place, the release said.
Richmond Hill police initially placed Allmond, who was hired by the department in July 2017, on administrative leave in August 2018 while the GBI conducted its investigation.
He was fired when the GBI arrested him. He was initially charged with aggravated sexual battery and aggravated child molestation.

“This conviction validates our department’s actions in immediately suspending, and then terminating, Allmond when the allegations came to our attention,” Police Chief Mitch Shores previously said. “We take such betrayals of the public trust very seriously, and gave full assistance to the agencies that investigated and prosecuted this case.”
After Allmond completes his prison sentence, he will spend 10 years on supervised release, U.S. District Court Judge Lisa Godney Wood ruled. He also must register as a sex offender.
