A former law enforcement officer is out on bond after his arrest on charges of criminal sexual conduct with a minor.
Jeffrey Gibson, 41, of 1307 Tyler Road, Dillon, was arrested Tuesday after a 12-year-old told authorities he touched her inappropriately while the two were “playfighting,” according to a Dillon Police Department incident report.
The victim told police Gibson “threw her on the couch and inappropriately touched her in one of her private areas,” according to the report. The victim said Gibson had touched her inappropriately several times in the past two months or so.
The victim was placed in the custody of the S.C. Department of Social Services, pending the outcome of the investigation.
Gibson served as an officer with the Dillon Police Department about 10 years ago and worked in law enforcement in Marion County, as well.
