SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — An officer with the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office is jailed in Savannah after being charged with child molestation.

Authorities say sheriff’s Lt. Rick Hall was arrested Friday night following a search at his home.

Hall is charged with aggravated child molestation, and the sheriff’s office says he is now suspended without pay.

Records at the Chatham County jail show Hall is being held without bond, but court records aren’t available to show whether he has an attorney.

Hall has been a lieutenant with the sheriff’s office since 2007.

Authorities didn’t immediately release details on the case, but a news conference is planned for Monday.
