Along with claiming to be the victim of sexual assault, the young woman claims she was supposedly impregnated and gave birth to a child as a result of one her encounters with her attacker.
The accused was taken into custody by authorities in Aiken County. It is unknown as to whether he is currently being detained or if he has been released on bond. Court dates have not be reported regarding this matter.
