Senoia Man Turns Himself In For Molesting Child

by Wes Mayer

A Senoia man suspected of kidnapping, imprisoning and molesting a juvenile turned himself over to authorities Tuesday, detectives said.

Around 3 p.m., Senoia Police officers responded to a Senoia home in reference to a possible sexual assault involving a juvenile, said Lt. Jason Ercole with the Senoia Police Department. At the residence, officers found the victim and the suspect’s father, who made the 911 call. The suspect, Terry Lee Sherman, 18, fled the scene before officers arrived, Ercole said.

According to Ercole, the juvenile was not physically injured.

After interviewing the victim and Sherman’s father, detectives were able to collect enough evidence to believe Sherman committed child molestation. Warrants were obtained for Sherman’s arrest, and Sherman turned himself over to authorities.

“Authorities are not releasing the age or sex of the victim in order to protect the victim’s privacy rights and to protect the integrity of the investigation which is still on going,” Ercole said.
