Man arrested on outstanding warrants for child molestation

Columbus police arrested a man early Friday on accusations he molested a 13-year-old girl, authorities said.

Deconceptio Hampton, 26, is charged with child molestation, giving a false name and two counts of statutory rape, Muscogee County Jail officials said.

Police say they responded to a Columbus home Feb. 22 about the allegations. Warrants for Hampton’s arrest were taken out the next day.

Sgt. Craig Haggas declined to release any further details.

Held without bond, Hampton is scheduled for Columbus Recorder’s Court at 2 p.m. Saturday.
