Former Tucker MS teacher pleads guilty to child molestation

DeKalb County District Attorney's spokesman Erik Burton said Thomas will spent 20 years of his 30-year sentence in custody.

"These alleged crimes involve a man who preyed on a minor while in a position of authority and respect as an educator," DeKalb County District Attorney Robert James said in a statement. "This plea reflects the acts of a monster who molested, abuse and took advantage of women and children in DeKalb County. We hope this begins the healing process for all individuals and families affected by these heinous crimes."
