BELL, Chief Judge.
Child molestation. Upson Superior Court. Before Judge Whalen.
Defendant was convicted of child molestation. Held:
1. Several questions addressed to the ten-year-old prosecutrix were permitted to be answered over the objection that they were leading. Assuming the questions were leading, their employment lay within the sound discretion of the trial judge and no abuse thereof has been shown. English v. State, 234 Ga. 602 (2) (216 SE2d 851).
2. The prosecutrix' testimony established the crime charged in the indictment. A physician testified that he examined the victim and his testimony tended to corroborate the victim's. Thus the evidence sufficiently established the crime charged and authorized the jury to convict.
3. The remaining enumerations of error are without merit and require no further consideration.
Johnnie L. Caldwell, Jr., District Attorney, J. David Fowler, Paschal A. English, Jr., Assistant District Attorneys, for appellee.
Bridges & Connell, Don E. Snow, for appellant.
SUBMITTED MAY 22, 1978 -- DECIDED JUNE 15, 1978.
