    MOLESTER SENTENCED: A Newnan man was sentenced to 20 years in prison last week after a Coweta County Superior Court jury convicted him of three counts of aggravated child molestation and three counts of child molestation.

    Investigators with the sheriff's department said Timothy Mark Shoemaker, 19, abused a young male for four years. The victim is now 8 years old. The abuse came to light after the boy's parents heard him make sexual remarks and sent him to a counselor.

    Shoemaker was sentenced on Thursday by Judge Quillian Baldwin.
