Gainesville man, 44, charged with child molestation

A Gainesville man is accused of committing “an indecent sexual act” in the presence of a 15-year-old girl, according to authorities.

Joseph Trent Dollyhigh, 44, was charged with child molestation. He was booked Friday, Dec. 21, in to the Hall County Jail. He was released after posting a $5,700 bond the following day.

A phone number listed for Dollyhigh on online databases was inoperable.

Hall County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Scott Ware said Dollyhigh “committed an indecent sexual act in the presence of a minor female child” Sept. 28 at a Hall County residence.

Ware said Dollyhigh and the girl were previously acquainted with one another.

Investigators obtained a warrant for Dollyhigh Dec. 12.

The case is still under investigation.
