1 accused of sex crimes after allegedly luring woman into town

A criminal conviction is severe and can create various challenges in life. Those accused of sex crimes could face permanent registration as a sex offender and time behind bars. A South Carolina man is likely focused on his criminal defense after he was recently accused of luring a woman into the state and sexually assaulting her.

According to police, the man posed as a photographer in need of a model to meet women through online sources. He allegedly guaranteed a certain amount of profit to one woman in particular, who claims to have made the trip down after months of negotiation. After a few days, the man allegedly took her home and forced her to perform sexual acts with him while holding her hostage with threats.

During this time, she claims he allowed her to communicate with her parents under certain restrictions. The parents reportedly contacted authorities and expressed concern for her safety, and after tracking the location of the phone, local police initiated a search for the woman. Upon arriving at the home, they claim the man attempted to flee, but he was arrested shortly after and charged with criminal sexual conduct and kidnapping.

The charges he now faces are serious, and a conviction would have a devastating impact on his future. Individuals who are accused of similar sex crimes typically seek assistance from a defense attorney at the earliest opportunity. An attorney in South Carolina can evaluate the charges and evidence against a client and advise him or her on the best course of action to take during court proceedings.
