Anniston Police have charged 41-year-old Rafael Hammond with sexual abuse of a child less than 12 years old. Police say an investigation began in August after a woman told police that Hammond had been touching the child inappropriately for more than a year. The child is now 12.
The Calhoun-Cleburne Children's Center assisted police with interviews. The case has been given to a grand jury. Hammond is in the Calhoun County Jail on $30,000 bond.
