In Emanuel County Superior Court’s July 2017 term, Christopher Obearon Thomas negotiated a plea of guilty (Alford) on two counts child molestation. The first count rendered a 20-year prison sentence without parole. Count 2 rendered a 20-year probation sentence, which will run consecutively with Count 1. He also faced two additional counts of child molestation, both of which were deemed nol pros. Total, Thomas was sentenced to 40 years, the first 20 of which must be served in confinement and the remainder on probation.
