Badge and Bar: Man indicted on child molestation, rape charges

POSTED: November 14, 2013 12:03 a.m.

A 35-year-old man was indicted Tuesday on child molestation and rape charges by a Hall County grand jury.

Ajron Peppers has been charged with two counts of aggravated child molestation, statutory rape, two counts of child molestation and simple battery, a misdemeanor.

The indictment alleges a lengthy timeline of abuse between June 8, 2002, and Nov. 3, 2010, when the girl was younger than 16.

The exact dates charged are not material “except to the extent that the incident and acts alleged took place after July 1, 2006,” the indictment reads.

The only specific date in the indictment was Sept. 29, 2012, when Peppers hit the alleged victim with a bottle.

Man indicted in Clermont armed robbery attempt

Michael Allen Hoitink, 25, of Clermont, was indicted by a Hall County grand jury in October on charges of armed robbery.

Hoitink was arrested in June, after evading law enforcement for 19 days. He was wanted in connection with the May 31 attempted robbery of the Country Grocery and Deli, 6531 Dahlonega Highway, Clermont. 

A tip to law enforcement led to Hoitink’s arrest a few days after the Hall County Sheriff’s Office released surveillance footage with a clear view of the suspect and his car.

In the footage, cashier Manoj Patel boldly swatted at the robber with a large flashlight, prompting him to run away.

Young teen charged with rape, child molestation

A 13-year-old boy was indicted on rape and molestation charges by a Hall County grand jury.

In the Nov. 12 indictment, Rosendo Mojica was charged with one count of rape and two counts of aggravated child molestation for alleged crimes victimizing a girl under the age of 10 on July 4.

In the state of Georgia, teens between the ages of 13 and 16 can be charged as adults in Superior Court for offenses called the “seven deadly sins.”

The mandatory minimum sentence for aggravated child molestation is 25 years.

Mojica’s next appearance in Hall County Superior Court has not been set.
