Nicholas Becerra
A Thomson man has been arrested for the statutory rape of a girl under the age of 16.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation had been investigating the actions of Nicholas Austin Becerra, 19, of the 800 block of Ginger Hill Road stemming from a child molestation complaint in December 2016.
According to Special Agent in Charge Pat Morgan, the McDuffie County Sheriff’s Office asked GBI to assist in the investigation of the reported child molestation of a juvenile girl less than 16 at the time in McDuffie County.
He said that it was determined that Becerra, who was 18 at the time, and the juvenile female, had sexual intercourse. He said that once the investigation was complete, the case was turned over to the Toombs Judicial Circuit District Attorney.
The case was presented to the McDuffie County Grand Jury that indicted Becerra on June 17.
