Jeremy Jason Roach, 24, of 53 Peagram Circle, Fort Oglethorpe, turned himself in to local authorities on Jan. 17, and was charged with aggravated stalking, Catoosa County Sheriff Phil Summers said. If convicted on the stalking charge, Roach faces up to 10 years imprisonment.
Roach, who was arrested Jan. 4 on four counts of child molestation and released on $16,000 bond, is being held without bond in the Catoosa County jail. If convicted on all four counts, he also faces up to 80 years imprisonment.
The sheriff said Roach was arrested on the stalking charge after contacting one of the alleged victims by telephone and making verbal threats.
Catoosa detectives began investigating Roach after two juveniles complained Roach had molested them. Summers said it has not been determined if Roach met any of the alleged victims through his work with Fort Oglethorpe Fire and Rescue Department’s youth Explorer program.
Roach’s court-appointed attorney, Mike Giglio, will ask for a bond hearing, Summers said.
A Superior Court date has not been set in the case, he said
