A Gainesville man is behind bars without bond following an investigation by the Hall County Sheriff’s Office into a sexual battery case in north Hall County.

35-year-old Adam Jacob Hudson is accused of confining the adult female victim to his residence in the 4,000 block of Hiawatha Drive between 2 and 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 31, according to a press release from the Hall County Sheriff’s Office.

Hudson then committed the act of aggravated sexual battery against the victim and repeatedly shoved her, according to the press release.

Hudson faces charges of false imprisonment, simple battery under the Family Violence Act and aggravated sexual battery.

The crimes occurred after the victim made arrangements with Hudson to collect belongings from the residence the two had previously shared.

Hall County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the report of a sexual assault on the same day as the incident, meeting with the victim at a residence far from the scene of the incident.

Deputies obtained warrants for Hudson’s arrest on the day of the incident, and he later turned himself in at the Hall County Jail on Monday, June 22 at around 8:45 a.m. As of the afternoon of Wednesday, June 24, Hudson remained in the Hall County Jail.

According to a press release, the case remains under investigation.
