Suspect Captured Here in Cherokee County, Convicted of Child Molestation in Northwest Georgia

A 34 year old Chattooga County, Georgia man was found guilty of child molestation in Chattooga County Superior Court recently.  Johnathan Culberson was found guilty of molesting an eleven-year-old girl in September of 2020.  The incident reportedly took place at a house in the Trion area around 3:30am.

When law enforcement was alerted about the incident, the suspect evaded arrest by fleeing from the area.  Trion Schools went on a “soft lockdown” while a manhunt was conducted in the area.  Culberson was subsequently apprehended here in Cherokee County (Alabama) – and was handed over to Chattooga County authorities.

He was found guilty on child molestation charges and was sentenced to 25 years with 10 years to serve.  He is being held in the Chattooga County Jail awaiting transport to a Georgia Department of Corrections prison.
