Hall County man arrested on child molestation warrant

By Derreck Booth Anchor/reporter
A Hall County man is free on bond after his arrest last week on an outstanding warrant for child molestation, authorities said.
 
Quentin Scott Galt, 38, of Gainesville, was arrested on the warrant this past Thursday, according to Hall County Sheriff's Deputy Stephen Wilbanks.
 
The arrest followed an investigation of an alleged March incident involving a 5-year-old child.
 
"The investigative process, of course, took some time, and then the investigator was able to obtain the warrant,"  Wilbanks said.  "That's the reason for the delay between the dates."
 
Galt was arrested without incident and booked into the Hall County Jail.
 
"He posted bond on the 7th.  He's currently free on $27,700 bond," Wilbanks said.
 
Authorities didn't immediately have an attorney listed for Galt.
