A 21-year-old Richland County woman is in the Kershaw County Detention Center, charged with having sex with a 14-year-old Lugoff boy.

According to a Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) press release, an investigator arrested Keri Ann Spires, 21, following an interview at the sheriff’s office Friday. The KCSO charged Spires with criminal sexual conduct with a minor between the ages of 11 and 14.

Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews said the boy’s mother came to the KCSO on July 22 and reported that Spires, who she thought was 21, had engaged in sexual relations with her son more than once in their Lugoff home.

The investigator assigned to the case confirmed Spires is 21. He then interviewed both the victim and his mother, and arranged for the boy to undergo a forensic interview. That information, along with the investigator’s interview of Spires, led to her arrest.

Spires is being detained pending a bond hearing.

“Most criminal sexual conduct cases involve a male suspect,” Matthews said. “Women also need to realize that it is against the law for them to engage in inappropriate sexual relationships with underage boys. When we find out about this kind of activity, we will investigate and, if appropriate, make an arrest.”

A check of both the Kershaw and Richland county court public indexes showed no previous arrests involving Spires.
