A 62-year-old Lady’s Island man faces a rape charge after being accused of repeatedly assaulting a woman in Beaufort over a two year period, according to a Beaufort Police Department report.
Johnnie Jackson, identified in the report as an apartment manager at Mossy Oaks Village Apartments on Johnny Morrall Circle, is charged with third degree criminal sexual conduct, according to online Beaufort County Detention Center records. He was brought to the detention center early Monday morning.
Jackson is accused of forcing his way into the apartment of a female tenant and raping her, according to the report. The victim, with the help of an employee of the Beaufort County Disabilities and Special Needs Department, reported the incident to police in early December 2017, according to the report. She said Jackson attacked her “routinely” once a month from September 2015 through the end of November 2017, according to the report.
A warrant was already out for Jackson’s arrest when he turned himself in early Monday morning, the report said. He was released on $10,000 bond Monday afternoon, according to online Beaufort County court records.
