Former state trooper arrested on child molestation charges

A Georgia State trooper is facing some serious charges.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation arrested and charged Trooper Brian Sanchez with child molestation and sexual battery.

The Forsyth County Sheriff's Office asked the GBI to conduct an investigation of an accusation earlier this month in Cumming. 

Sanchez turned himself in to the Forsyth County Jail.

The state agency fired Sanchez after his arrest.
