Former deputy sheriff arrested for having sex with 14 year old www.privateofficer.com
The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division says 26-year-old Michael Boulware stands charged with second degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.
“To know that it’s a brother of the law enforcement that I work with around our community and county, very surprising, devastating, and I’m very upset about it.”
Falls says his oldest daughter, just 14 years old, drank alcohol with Michael Boulware. But Thursday, Falls found out a different 14-year-old girl did a little more — she had sex with Boulware.
Now Boulware’s charges aren’t just about giving alcohol to minors; they’ve been upgraded to a felony.
“I just asked her to be open and honest with the investigators, then we’ll go from there,” Falls said.
Falls, especially being in law enforcement himself, never thought his daughter would be involved in something like this.
“We keep a close hand with our kids and you think you know them in and out,” he said. “You still need to check up on them a little more.”
For Falls and for Boulware’s neighbors, who also have young kids, the arrest is a relief.
“We have enough on the streets to worry about, keeping kids out of trouble, and we have a brother in law enforcement ruining it all for us,” Falls said.
Falls says Michael Boulware was a family friend, and that’s how he got to know the girls.
Boulware is scheduled to be in bond court at 3:30pm Friday. If convicted of the latest charge, he could face up to 20 years in prison.
