A former Hart County doctor was set to stand trial for alleged child molestation crimes on Monday, but the trial was postponed.
Tommy Charles Beeson, 72, of Hartwell, was scheduled to be in Hart County Superior Court on Monday, Sept. 30, for a criminal jury trial, but prosecutors said Beeson was recently admitted to the hospital, causing a delay in the trial.
Chief Assistant District Attorney Brian Atkinson told The Hartwell Sun that the defendant filed a motion to continue the case and there was a hearing on that motion back on Sept. 18.
