Paulding Co. man sentenced to life in prison for molesting 2 children

A Paulding County man has been sentenced to life in prison for molesting two children and possessing child pornography, officials said Monday.

Earlier this month, Daniel Allen Martin, 31, pleaded guilty in Paulding County Superior Court to two counts of aggravated child molestation and one count of possessing child pornography, the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

Investigators found multiple electronic devices at Martin’s home “documenting the molestation of two known victims as well as two other ... victims,” after being alerted to the case last December, the statement said. 

One of the additional victims lives in Douglas County, according to authorities.

Douglas authorities were alerted, and Martin also faces charges there.
