Converse man charged with child molesting

A Converse man is now facing a charge of child molesting after the Grant County Sheriff’s Office received a fax from a victim in Oregon, according to the probable cause affidavit.

The victim, who is under 14 years of age, alleges that 34-year-old Alan William Hammond made the victim perform sexual acts on an almost daily basis beginning as early as the age of 8.

The affidavit said the victim alleges Hammond committed the acts in several locations, including his residences in Converse and Sweetser.

Hammond was released from the Grant County Jail Wednesday, the same day he was charged, on a $100,005 bond.
