Dr. Kelly Thrasher

Plea proceedings have been postponed in the case against a Sandy Springs doctor accused of sexually abusing a young girl. 41-year-old Kelly Thrasher is charged with child molestation, aggravated child molestation and sexual battery, according to a press release from the Fulton District Attorney’s office.  The charges against Thrasher stem from a Nov. 17, 2012, incident during a sleepover at the defendant’s home.

Pre-trial motions were scheduled in the case for Monday morning, Oct. 13. However, shortly before those proceedings, there were indications Thrasher might instead enter a guilty plea.

Fulton County Superior Court Judge T. Jackson Bedford rescheduled the plea hearing for Oct. 27.
