A Gainesville man is accused of inappropriately touching a 7-year-old girl, police said.

Sgt. Kevin Holbrook said the information came following a school program for students.

“What happens is the school system goes in and does their ‘Good Touch, Bad Touch’ (program), and then this was one of those that came out of that program,” Holbrook said.

Holbrook said the girl then revealed information to an adult about multiple incidents.

“Through the course of the investigation, it was revealed that (Curtis Eugene Akins) had been inappropriately touching her,” Holbrook said.

Akins was booked Friday, Nov. 16, in to the Hall County Jail on a charge of child molestation.

No information was available from Magistrate Court on Akins retaining an attorney.

“We’ll typically see an increase, sadly, of these cases as a result of that program,” Holbrook said.
