From Sandy Springs Police Capt. Steve Rose

A Fulton County Grand Jury has indicted a Sandy Springs doctor on charges that he molested a juvenile female during a sleepover at his residence.

Doctor Kelly Thrasher was indicted Tuesday on Child Molestation. The Fulton County Grand Jury added the charges of Sexual Battery and Aggravated Sexual Battery to the indictment. Thrasher was arrested on Jan. 24 after his release from the Ridgeview Medical Center where he entered himself after detectives initiated a criminal investigation into the molestation complaint.

The 40-year old Thrasher is also charged in a Nov. 2012 incident where he is accused of sexually assaulting a 38-year-old woman at his residence in Sandy Springs. That case is set for Feb. 13, 2013 at 10 a.m. in Sandy Springs Municipal Court.

A court date on the indicted charges has not been set. Thrasher is currently free on $50,000 bond

@"Truth Hurts" - You seem to have already had your own trial and conviction. Glad I don't know you. I say he is innocent until proven guilty. Let the justice system work.

Same here. No problems in 5 years. I am praying for them all.

Dr. Thrasher has been my doctor since he took over Thorne Winter's practice about 8 years ago. I have received excellent care from Dr. Thrasher, particularly last November when I was diagnosed with pneumonia, a UTI, and a blood infection. He called me at 7:00 p.m. just two days after a visit to his office and blood tests, to let me know the results of the test and said he was phoning in an Rx to my pharmacy right then. He asked that I pick up the Rx immediately and take one capsule as soon as I got home. He gave me his personal phone number and asked that I call him back so he could discuss my issues with me. I could not have asked for better care and more professionalism. I am distressed to learn of his current situation. I pray that it is not true. I am praying for him and his family and all involved.
