Man charged with child molestation

Investigators believe a Dalton man sexually abused a female relative who came forward months later to tell her story.

Mario Martinez-Cervantes, 38, of 1339 Tilton Road, was charged Wednesday by the Whitfield County Sheriff’s Office with child molestation. He remains in jail without bond.

Lt. Nancy Chadwick said the girl is in her early teens and was molested sometime last year.
