In fact, Julius Winfrey Peek, 68, of Cedartown, has not been formally indicted by a grand jury on any of his charges, which includes attempted child molestation, according to Assistant District Attorney Beth Evans.
“We’re not in a position where I can go forward to a grand jury,” Evans said. “We’re waiting on some additional information.”
Evans said she is waiting on documentation from the investigator, but couldn’t elaborate further.
Evans said she discussed this case with the investigator last week.
Peek was arrested Feb. 14, 2009, by Rossville police as part of a sting operation targeting possible child predators.
Peek’s arrest came after he allegedly drove from Cedartown to Rossville to meet with a 14-year-old girl, expecting to have sex with her, Rossville police said.
Investigators arrested Peek when he arrived at the pre-arranged location where he was to meet the child.
Peek is charged with criminal attempt of child molestation, sexual exploitation of children, computer pornography and possession a firearm during the commission of a crime.
He has been out on $25,000 bond waiting on a trial, according to police.
