PAULDING COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

A Paulding County man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison as part of a plea deal after being convicted of child molestation.

Nicholas Brian Odell, 27, agreed to the non-negotiated plea deal on June 8, just prior to his scheduled trial. Odell pleaded guilty to three counts of child molestation following a series of incidents that took place in 2013. 

An investigation began in 2015 by the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office Crimes Against Children Division and determined that Odell, who was 22 years-old at the time, sexually molested a 12 year-old child.

He was sentenced to 30 years and he will serve 15 of that 30 incarcerated in a Georgia state prison. He must also register as a sex offender upon his release.
