Trial Begins for Ex-GBI Agent Accused of Child Molestation
Macon, GA – Charles S. Woodall, Ex Georgia Bureau of Investigation Agent and former youth leader at Northway Church, is now on trial for the sexual abuse of minors. He was indicted during the summer of 2016 on charges of molesting at least three boys and enticing them along with another boy for indecent purposes.
Woodall resigned from the GBI in November 2015 after his arrest where he had been working since 2011.
Two of the boys, now in their 20s, took the stand this week. They told the jury that Woodall would show them internet pornography, touch them sexually and use sex toys on them. One of the young men stated he wanted “to pretend like it never happened.”
Prosecutor, Dorothy Hall, explained Woodall was someone the young boys looked up to. One of the victims said Woodall would take him camping, hiking, to movies and concerts, treating the child as one of his own. Woodall befriended the boys’ parents and relatives, which one victim said made it more difficult to come out about the abuse.
It is very brave of these young men to come forward against their abuser.
