A Gainesville man has been accused of molesting a 14-year-old boy at a residence in Hall County, according to authorities.

Lawrence Ryan Chisolm, 38, was charged with aggravated child molestation. He was booked Friday, Jan. 25 in to the Hall County Jail, where he remains.

Hall County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Scott Ware said Chisolm was accused of molesting a 14-year-old boy in mid-October.

“The victim and Chisolm were acquainted. The molestation was reported to the Sheriff’s Office by family members of the victim,” Ware wrote in a news release.

No bond has been set at this time, and the case is still under investigation.

Magistrate Court officials said Chisolm requested a public defender, but one had not been assigned Monday, Jan. 28.
