A Hilton Head Island man was arrested Tuesday, accused of inappropriately touching a 10-year-old girl, according to the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.
Richard Washington Jr., 33, was charged with criminal sexual conduct with a minor in connection with several incidents the victim reported to school staff in February. The inappropriate contact reportedly took place several times since August at the victim's Hilton Head Island home, Sgt. Robin McIntosh said.
Washington was being held Wednesday at the Beaufort County Detention Center pending a bond hearing, according to the jail log.
