The October clown events almost didn't take place after numerous reports of "creepy clowns," according to the Whitfield County Director of Communications, Mitch Talley, who posted about the events on the county's Facebook page.
Chitwood said an investigation into White’s alleged behavior was launched last week, when a woman brought her granddaughter to the sheriff’s office and said she had been molested.
Three children, ages 10, 11 and 12, told similar stories about White molesting them between 2012 and 2015, Chitwood said.
White faces five counts of child molestation and four counts of sexual battery against children under age 16.
The three children didn’t know each other. Investigators believe more victims may exist.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Daniel Jones of the Whitfield County Sheriff’s Office at 706-278-3029.
