Children need models rather than critics.-- Joseph Joubert (1754-1824) French Philosopher
GEORGETOWN, SC (WMBF) Police in Georgetown have made an arrest in an alleged sexual assault and are asking anyone with information to speak up.
An initial report was filed on May 15 concerning the victim in foster care at the residence of 48-year-old Calvin Lee Kinloch of Georgetown.
The incident report from Georgetown Police indicates the 16-year-old teen girl may have been in drug withdrawal when the crime was reported. She claims that Kinloch bought her a pack of cigarettes and then forced himself on her.
After the alleged incident, the teen contacted a family member, who told police the teen had a history of incorrigibility and could be very manipulative when she wanted to come back home.
Following an ongoing investigation Kinloch was arrested and charged with criminal sexual conduct. Kinloch surrendered to authorities on Friday, August 17. He was later released on a $40,000 bond.
The Georgetown Police Department is asking the public to come forward with any information about this incident by contacting Sgt. Keith Small at 843-545-4300.
