Paulding County man pleads guilty to molesting 12-year-old

A Paulding County man has pleaded guilty to three counts of child molestation. 

Nicholas Brian Odell, 27, was arrested in 2015 for aggravated child molestation from an incident that happened in 2013. At the time, Odell was 22-years-old and the victim was 12-years-old. 

On June 8, just prior to his trial, Odell agreed to a non-negotiated plea where he pled guilty to three counts of child molestation. 

Odell was sentenced to 30 years in prison. He'll serve 15 of the 30 in a Georgia State Prison. Once he's released from prison, Odell will be a registered Sex Offender.
