Woodstock Man Arrested On Child Molestation Charges

A Woodstock man remains behind bars after he was arrested on charges he molested a 13-year-old child.
Shogut Hussien, 64, is being held without bond at the Cherokee County Adult Detention Center on one count of child molestation and two counts of sexual battery.
He was arrested on Tuesday after a week-long investigation by the Cherokee Sheriff's Office. Public Information Officer Lt. Jay Baker said the incident was reported to the department by the child's family.
Baker said Hussien transported the child to activities at First Baptist Church of Woodstock.
"He has been involved with the family for approximately 4 months," he said, adding "indications are that this occurred on one occasion."
Baker said there are no reports of other victims at this time.
Hussien has not been arrested or charged with similar crimes, but a search of court records show he's been arrested for driving under the influence in 2008 and 2010.
