Mother of child reported incident
Max Allen Johnson

A Register man was arrested Monday after his daughter accused him of molesting his 5-year-old granddaughter.

Max Allen Johnson of Highway 46 in Register was charged Monday with aggravated child molestation, aggravated sodomy, incest and enticing a child for indecent purposes, said Bulloch County Sheriff Noel Brown.

Sheriff’s investigators, including lead investigator John Quattlebaum, met Monday with the victim’s mother, who levied the accusations against Johnson. She told investigators the alleged molestation took place at her father’s home in the 3000 block of Hwy. 46, Lot 53, he said. 

“Through the investigation, interviews conducted with the child, and evidence obtained from the scene … Johnson was arrested,” he said.

Johnson, 60, was taken to the Bulloch County Jail, where he remains without bond, Brown said.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact Quattlebaum at (912) 764-1785.
