Ex-Guardsman Guilty of Molestation

Meanwhile, a Cobb County murder case is delayed, and a Glock racketeering trial is due to start today.

A former Georgia National Guard master sergeant is due to be sentenced next Monday on three counts of child molestation.

John Joseph Kinnaman, 41, was convicted Friday of the charges in Cobb County Superior Court, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

The crime occurred in May 2010, according to records from the Cobb County jail, where Kinnaman has been held since Nov. 30. The AJC said the case involves a relative of Kinnaman’s.

Troup County sheriff’s deputies arrested Kinnaman, a LaGrange resident, and sent him to Cobb under a warrant issued Nov. 29.

He also was indicted last year on child molestation charges in Troup and Franklin counties, the AJC reported.

According to the Georgia code, a first conviction for child molestation carries a minimum sentence of five years in prison.

Also in Cobb County Superior Court:

Daker, 34, is charged with the strangulation murder of Delta flight attendant Karmen Smith in her East Cobb apartment in October 1995 and with stabbing her 5-year-old son, a Timber Ridge Elementary kindergartner, 16 times.

Instead of starting Monday, the trial is now set to begin June 4.

Jannuzzo’s trial on racketeering charges is due to start today.

His defense argues that lawyer and former FBI agent Robert Core has played too big a role in planning the prosecution’s case because his interest is in protecting Glock, not the people of Georgia, the AJC said.
