Chattanooga camp counselor held on sex charges in GA
CARROLLTON, GA (AP) - A Tennessee man is jailed on charges of exposing himself to minors at a west Georgia church camp.
Carroll County officials say 21-year-old Zachary Scott Anderle of Chattanooga, Tenn., is charged with cruelty to children, child molestation, sexual assault and battery.
The Times-Georgian reports Anderle traveled to a Christian camp as a church group leader.
Sheriff's Capt. Jeff Richards say the man is accused of exposing himself to several children and getting into bed naked with one. The man allegedly slapped a child who resisted.
The incident occurred at Woodland Christian Camp and Retreat Center in Temple. The director says a private group rented the camp, and directors support the legal process.
Anderle is jailed without bond. Court records weren't available Saturday to show whether he has a lawyer.
