A Georgia woman and man were arrested last month on sexual abuse charges, although little information is available pertaining to the case.
Sheriff Michael Howell reported that on May 3; 31-year-old Christine Watson of LaFayette, Georgia; was arrested and charged with first-degree sexual abuse.
A co-defendant; 29-year-old Brandon Yott of Rossville, Georgia; was arrested for the same charge on May 18.
Howell said the case was investigated by Coosa County Sheriff’s Office investigators who determined that a crime had been committed against a minor. Warrants were obtained, and the two were arrested in connection to the case.
However, Howell said no other details could be provided regarding the case because it involves a minor under the age of 12.
Bond for Watson and Yott was set at $15,000 each. Watson has since been released on bond, and as of press time Yott remained in custody at the Coosa County Jail, with both awaiting trial.
