      Murrells Inlet man accused of soliciting sex from minor

      The Georgetown County Sheriff's Office arrested Michael John Bourque, Jr., 23, of Murrells Inlet, for Criminal Solicitation of a Minor and Attempted Criminal Sexual Conduct with a Minor Second Degree.

      Bourque used an internet website ad to solicit sex from an individual he believed to be a minor child, according to arrest warrants. The warrants say Bourque engaged in sexual conversations before making arrangements and then traveling to meet an individual he believed to be a child.

      Bourque's arrest is part of an ongoing investigation effort by the Attorney General's Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force.

      Bourque is out on a $30,000 surety bond.
