A Cumming man is accused of molesting a 12-year-old boy at a Hall County residence, according to authorities.

Jacob Matthias Young, 40, was arrested and charged with child molestation Tuesday, May 14.

Hall County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Scott Ware said Young allegedly molested the boy at a Hall County residence in October, but an arrest warrant wasn’t obtained until May 9.

Defense attorney Jeff Talley said Young passed an independent polygraph exam last week “that said he didn’t do anything.”

The case is still under investigation.
