Placeholder Image
A Johnsonville man arrested in 2012 for sexually assaulting an 8-year-old, and allegedly plotting to have the victim and her family killed, pleaded guilty under a negotiated plea deal on Monday. Circuit Court Judge James Barber sentenced Brian Robert Sharpe, 26, to three years in jail; five years probation; and sex offender counseling, treatment and evaluation on first-degree assault and battery charges. The Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) originally charged Sharpe with first-degree criminal sexual conduct.
