Teen boy admits to molestation charges
A 13-year-old Edgefield boy pleaded guilty to two counts of child molestation in a Columbia County courtroom Tuesday as part of the negotiated plea agreement with the district attorney's office.
Police charged Brantley Corey Poston with aggravated child molestation involving a 6-year-old Augusta girl in July.
While out on bond, Corey was charged with child molestation in Columbia County after he was accused of molesting a 3-year-old girl at an Evans birthday party Nov. 6.
Corey, a Merriwether Middle School pupil, admitted to two child-molestation allegations during a Columbia County adjudication hearing, which combined both counties' charges.
Juvenile Court Judge Doug Flanagan approved a psycho-sexual evaluation of Corey to be presented at his disposition hearing in less than 30 days.
Corey's sentence could range from counseling to serving up to 60 months in a juvenile detention center, said Rodney Brown, Columbia County Juvenile Court intake officer.
The following accounts were taken from reports filed with the Columbia County Sheriff's Office:
A manager of an Appling restaurant told police someone stole $500 from the business Monday.
The burglary at Maryland Fried Chicken, on Clarks Hill Road, was discovered after police responded to an alarm at the store.
The restaurant's manager said the business was locked when she closed it at 3:15 p.m. Monday. The building had been broken into through a window.
Custodian's conduct reported The principal of Evans High School reported to police an incident that he said disrupted several of his school's classes Monday.
The disorderly conduct incident occurred when a school custodian began arguing with the principal after being disciplined.
The argument, the principal said, disrupted several classes. The principal told police the custodian then threw some building keys at him.
