Sex Offender Strikes Again?

A registered sex offender is accused of harming another child, according to Chattooga County Sheriff’s information.

Jonathan Tyrone Wooten, 31, is a registered sex offender living at the Summerville Motel in Gore. He is accused of harming an 11-year-old child Sunday afternoon at a residence in Summerville.

“. . . [Wooten] committed an immoral and indecent act with a juvenile, which included the act of sodomy, to arouse or satisfy the desires of either the child or the person,” Chattooga County Sheriff’s Investigator Jason Burrage stated.

Wooten was charged with child molestation and aggravated child molestation, according to jail reports.

This is the second time he’s been arrested for child molestation. The first time happened in Jan. 2009 in Floyd County. He was convicted in 2011 on one count of aggravated child molestation and was put on the sex offender registry in March 2011.
