Chattooga County Sheriff’s Department investigators are now saying that they had some wrong information about a man accused of molesting two young girls last week.  AM 1180 reported on the arrest of 50 year old Gary Randolph Bye who is accused of molesting the 5 and 7 year old daughters of an aquaintance. 

Originally investigators believed that Bye was infected with a sexually transmitted disease.  Detectives now say that the information concerning Bye was not correct – but they also point out that Bye is still being accused on the molestation charges.  The alleged sexual misconduct came to light when the two young girls told their mother about innapropriate contact with Bye.  The mother learned of the incidents on November 1. 

Investigators say the case is still ongoing against Bye.
