Man charged with child molestation
Several aliases hampered arrest
Jose Ojeida-Barbosa
A man charged with molesting an eight-year-old girl dodged arrest for months by using a variety of aliases, but Bulloch County Sheriff’s investigators, with the help of immigration police, caught up with him after a recent traffic stop. Jose Ojeida-Barbosa, 44, U.S. 301 South, is held in the Bulloch County Jail on charges of child molestation, sexual battery, and giving false identity to law enforcement, said Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson. Sheriff’s investigators were alerted in August about the “alleged molestation involving an eight-year-old female victim which occurred at a residence on U.S. 301 South in Statesboro,” he said. ”Forensic interviews were conducted with the victim and a criminal investigation was initiated.”
