Grand jury indicts Macon Co. sheriff on sexual battery charge

Macon Co. Sheriff under investigation for alleged 'inappropriate touching'

A grand jury indicted the Macon County sheriff for alleged sexual battery on Monday.

In November, 13WMAZ reported that a woman in Ellaville in Schley County, accused Charles Cannon Jr. of inappropriate touching.

13WMAZ obtained a police incident report from August 2017 that said an officer was called to Central Automotive in Ellaville for a complaint of "a male grabbing a female by the buttock."

Cordele Circuit DA Brad Rigby, who's handling the case, said the Schley grand jury charged Cannon with sexual battery, a misdemeanor.

In November, Cannon declined comment on the case.

He was elected Macon County Sheriff in 2016 to replace his father, Charles Cannon Sr.
