Evans, Ga. — The man wanted for molesting and then kidnapping a 15-year-old girl was arrested in eastern Tennessee.

Jason Johnson, 37, was arrested this weekend in Sevierville, Tenn. He was wanted for molesting Calah Waskow, 15, in her residence city of Evans.

Today, though, officers with the Sevier County Sheriff’s Department handed Mr. Johnson over to Columbia County’s Sheriff Office officers.

In addition to the child molestation charge, Mr. Johnson is also charged with aggravated child molestation, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and enticing a child for indecent purposes.

He will not have a court date this year. He will, however, remain in the Columbia County Jail until January 5, 2017. That date is his first appearance in court.

NOTE: As she was previously identified in Georgia and Tennessee’s Amber Alerts and South Carolina’s Bond Alert, Aiken Area Progressive has decided to identify the child molestation victim in this case.
