Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) investigators arrested a Johnsonville man Thursday, charging him with sexually assaulting an 8-year-old girl in Kershaw County. Brian Robert Sharpe, 25, faces one count of criminal sexual conduct toward a minor under 11. According to Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews, the victim’s family members contacted the KCSO in early June after they learned from the 8-year-old that Sharpe -- her mother’s boyfriend -- had sexually assaulted her during the early morning hours of June 1.
