LAWRENCEVILLE — Indictments were passed down this week in several Gwinnett child molestation cases.

A Gwinnett County grand jury found enough cause Wednesday for the prosecution to move forward in five separate cases, their collective alleged crimes occurring between October 2012 and September of this year. Five individual indictments charged the following suspects:

— Zain Gaona, two counts of child molestation. Gaona is accused of inappropriately touching a female under the age of 16 on Sept. 14.

— Bryant Devon Scott, two counts of child molestation, two counts of peeping Tom, public indecency and criminal attempt to commit a crime. In separate incidents on Sept. 9 and 12, Scott is accused of exposing and fondling himself in front of two young girls and attempting to break into another home with two females inside.

— Arron Lavell Johnson, two counts of child molestation, two counts of statutory rape, aggravated child molestation. Johnson is accused of having intercourse with a female under the age of 16 multiple times between April 8 and 22.

— Harold Moore, two counts of child molestation. Moore is accused of inappropriately touching a female under the age of 16 on Nov. 12, 2012. The alleged victim’s mother was also indicted on charges that she untruthfully told police that her daughter recanted the allegations against Moore.

— Khaleel Muhamad Al Haboosh, two counts of child molestation and two counts of sexual battery. Al Haboosh is accused of inappropriately touching a male under the age of 16 in separate incidents on Oct. 12 and 13 of last year.

Gaona, Scott, Johnson and Al Haboosh are being held in the Gwinnett County jail without bond. Moore was released on $27,700 bond the same day of his arrest on Nov. 25, 2012.
