June 11--  A week after starting work as the Director of Emergency Management in Montgomery County, Jimmy Braddy turned in his letter of resignation.

According to a warrant filed by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Braddy allegedly molested a girl under the age of sixteen on three occasions during the period from December, 2011 to April, 2012. 

The GBI claims two of the molestations occurred at the Higgston City Hall and the third at Braddy's residence, 2705 Thompson Pond Road, in Montgomery County.

He was released on bond after the warrants were served Monday afternoon at the Montgomery County Sheriff's office.

Braddy is the former chief of the Higgston Volunteer Fire Department.  He resigned in order to take the new job with Montgomery County.

Montgomery County manager Brandon Braddy says county Sheriff Ladson O'Connor will serve as interim EMA director until a replacement is hired.
