Police arrest Whitfield suspect 17 years later
DALTON, Georgia (WDEF) – A man wanted in connection to an alleged sexual assault of a minor in Whitfield County back in 1999 is now in custody.
51-year old Gregory Swinney is facing two counts of enticing a child for indecent purposes and child molestation.
A warrant was issued for his arrest 17-years ago but Swinney relocated to Texas.
According to Whitfield County authorities, prosecutors were not going to pursue the case as along as Swinney didn’t come back to Georgia.
But when authorities learned Swinney was back in Dalton, he was immediately taken into custody.
