Darlington County deputies charged Marcus Hawkins, 18, with Criminal Sexual Conduct with a Minor.

Someone reported to the Darlington County Sheriff's Office this summer that Hawkins assaulted a 12-year-old girl in early spring, according to Captain Andy Locklair.

Hawkins was a friend of the girl's family, Locklair said.

Deputies couldn't charge Hawkins until Tuesday because is was in another jail on other charges.
