Man accused of child molestation, showing young girl pornography
Johathan Dean Edwards

A Flowery Branch man is accused of exposing a young girl to pornography and then engaging “in inappropriate sexual behavior” with the girl, according to authorities.

Jonathan Dean Edwards, 20, was charged with child molestation and enticing a child for indecent purposes. He was booked Thursday, Oct. 25, in to the Hall County Jail, where he is being without a bond.

Hall County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Scott Ware said Edwards and the girl — described by Ware as under the age of 10 — were acquainted with one another.

Ware said Edwards allegedly took the girl on Oct. 6 to a Flowery Branch residence and “exposed her to viewing pornography.”

“Edwards also engaged in inappropriate sexual behavior with the child as well,” Ware wrote in a news release.

The case is still under investigation.

Hall County Magistrate Court officials said Edwards had requested a public defender but one had not been assigned as of Friday, Oct. 26.
