      Man accused of molesting two girls

      Maurice McKenzie of Dillon is expected to go before a circuit court judge this week for a bond hearing on Criminal Sexual Conduct Charges.

      Dillon County deputies arrested McKenzie July 3 for molesting two girls, ages nine and eleven.

      Dillon County Sheriff's Captain Cliff Arnette says they were contacted July 2 by the parents of the nine-year-old saying McKenzie had inappropriately touched her.

      During the investigation, a 17-year-old girl came forward to deputies saying McKenzie had molested her when she was eleven.

      Arnette says they're not releasing the victim's relationship to McKenzie to protect their identities.

      McKenzie is being held at the Dillon County Detention Center.
