AUSTELL — A former security guard is accused of raping and sexually assaulting women at a facility for people with mental health and substance abuse problems.

Moses Roscoe “Moe” Eaddy, 43, was arrested Oct. 29 on one count of rape and two counts of sexual assault, all felonies.

Eaddy is accused of attacking women on Sept. 10 and 17 in a storage room at The Circle, located at 6133 Love St. in Austell, which offers mental health, substance abuse and developmental disability treatment to residents of Cobb and Douglas counties.

The GBI identified three victims who were clients of the facility. GBI Spokesman John Bankhead said the victims have disabilities.

The facility is the base of the Cobb Community Services Board peer support program, which won the 2012 peer support program of the year award Aug. 23 at the Georgia Mental Health Consumer Network’s 21st annual Consumer Conference on St. Simons Island.

The program, according to a Journal report dated Sept. 13, provides “structured activities that encourage socialization, recovery, wellness, self-advocacy and enhancement of independent living skills.”

Cobb Community Services Board spokesman Allan Lipsett said Eaddy had passed a state background check with no red flags and was hired in February, but was dismissed in September when the board learned of the allegations.

While in jail, Eaddy was served with a warrant for a third incident occurring between Aug. 1 and Sept. 18 at a private residence in Austell. The victim in that case was also a client of The Circle, according to the warrant.

Eaddy, who was arrested at his Duluth home, is being held in the Cobb Jail. His bail has been set at $25,000.
