DALTON, GA (AP) - Police in Dalton say a woman turned in her own son on claims he had sex with an underage girl.
That man is now charged with a sex offense.
The Rome News-Tribune says a Dalton police report states 20-year-old Terrance Turner, his mother and a sibling were staying with another family in the north Georgia city.
The report says Turner's mother called police to report her son had sex with a juvenile girl living at the house. The newspaper didn't identify the mother by name.
Turner is charged with child molestation, solicitation and sexual battery against a child younger than 16.
The police report says Turner explained to police that he laid down beside the girl to cuddle, telling an officer: "I don't know what's wrong with me."
