GEORGETOWN, GA (WTVM) -

Two women who formerly worked to protect the public from danger are now facing felony charges of promoting child molestation.

Joanna Harris, a former Randolph County Sheriff's Deputy, and Angle Gregors, a Randolph County EMT, are facing a maximum penalty of 20 years in jail.  The two mothers are accused of allowing their underage children to engage in a sexual relationship.

Their two teenagers, ages 14 and 16, are said to have been in a sexual relationship for at least 6 months and according to investigators, their parents knew about it.

As the Randolph County District Attorney, Craig Earnest, explained, in the eyes of Georgia law, knowing about the act and doing nothing to stop it is the same as participating in the act.  That is why the parents are being charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor and child molestation.

A Quitman County grand jury indicted the pair on Monday and both are awaiting arraignment on the charges.
