Hello -

Thank you for contacting JustAnswer.

According to Georgia Code Title 16-6-4, each molestation charge carries a 10 year minimum sentence and 30 year maximum sentence.

The best thing you can do is make sure he has competent representation. Here is a link to the Georgia Bar referral service.

Can he expect any assistance from the military? He has 34 days before he is being discharged and is being held in kansas until then. The accusations come from his estranged wife that got pregnant by another guy. Will kansas be required to provide representation before he is sent down to Georgia?
