Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott announced Thursday the arrest of 54-year-old Charles Deveaux, a correction officer at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.

Officials say Deveaux no longer works for Richland County.

Sheriff Lott said Deveaux turned himself in to investigators at 1pm Thursday, was charged with first degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor – victim under 11 years of age – and booked at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.

  1. In a nation wherein “In GOD We Trust” has become a mere creed on the money upon which it is printed, corruption and wickedness exist on both sides of the badge and the bars. Yet, are they bad men just because they made some bad choices? Do not all of us have A’s and F’s on our moral report cards? As I so stated on my blog, http://www.victoryNchrist.net we can’t fix it IF we can’t face it. I dare anyone who wants to fix their F’s to read that textbook in sex education and then to trust in GOD…and that’s my final answer!
