Police say man offered teen money for sex

A College Park man became agitated and proclaimed his innocence, Thursday afternoon, in Clayton County Magistrate Court, after hearing details of sex charges filed against him.

Zaccheus Kenyatha Jackson, 19, is charged with child molestation, enticing a child for indecent purposes and pandering. As Magistrate Judge Betrice Scott read the warrant to him, Jackson became increasingly agitated, and mumbled as deputies admonished him to remain still and quiet.

"I wouldn't never do any [expletive] like that," said Jackson.

The warrants allege that Jackson followed two sisters, ages 15 and 14, Wednesday about 7:15 p.m., into a wooded area near Norman Crossing in College Park. Police said Jackson repeatedly tried to touch the chest and buttocks of the older sister, and told the younger girl to walk ahead.

Police said Jackson then exposed his genitals to the older girl and offered her $3, if she would let him touch her genitals. Jackson reportedly confessed to police, telling them he was trying to "hook up with her."

Jackson spent about a year in prison on robbery charges in Muscogee County, and for terroristic threats and acts in Clayton County, according to Georgia Department of Corrections records. He was released in May.

Jackson is being held without bond in the Clayton County Jail.
