Marietta man, 34, convicted of molesting teen girl

COBB COUNTY, Ga. -

Thirty-four-year-old Adriel Noel Mann, of Marietta, is convicted of aggravated child molestation, according to Cobb District Attorney Vic Reynolds.

A Cobb County jury convicted Mann of one count of aggravated child molestation involving a teenage girl in November 2011. The victim is related to Mann's then-girlfriend, and the incident was immediately reported to police.

Mann was acquitted of another count of aggravated child molestation involving the same victim.

Assistant District Attorney Susan Treadaway, who prosecuted the case, said, "The State's case included allegations of aggravated child molestation on two occasions spanning approximately eleven months.

"The teen's account of how and when the molestation occurred was corroborated by others living in the household, as well as a family member of the victim who was visiting the home at the time.

"The victim, now 16, gave emotional testimony concerning the defendant's perpetration of this heinous act. At sentencing, the State will present evidence of the defendant's five prior felony convictions from the Commonwealth of Virginia, and based upon those convictions, Georgia law requires the Court to impose a sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole."

Cobb Superior Court Judge James Bodiford set sentencing for 10:30 a.m. on Aug. 22.  
The trial began July 15 with jury selection.
