An indecent liberties charge involving a 12-year-old was filed against a Clarendon man this week, Columbus County Sheriff’s Office reports show.
Sonny Ray Vause, 33, of the 12000 block of James B. White Hwy South, Clarendon, was arrested Tuesday, accused in a warrant of committing and attempt to commit “a lewd and lascivious act upon the body of a juvenile under the age of 16,” sheriff’s spokeswoman Michelle Tatum said Wednesday.

“This is an ongoing investigation,” Tatum said.
