Complaint dismissed against Horry County officer named in sexual assault claim


    Jane Doe 3 has dismissed her complaint against Horry County Police Lt. Thomas DelPercio, according to new documents filed on Thursday.

    DelPercio was one of four members of the department who knew of the sexual assault allegations by former police detective Troy Allen Large, according to Jane Doe 3, but did not prevent those interactions with females who had been victims of violent crimes.

    Large is accused of sexually assaulting rape victims whose cases he was investigating. He died in January 2018.

    Back in September 2016, he was indicted on six counts of misconduct in office and five counts of criminal sexual conduct third degree. Indictments alleged that Large knowingly used coercion to engage in sexual battery with multiple victims and knowingly engaged in inappropriate relationships with victims of cases he was investigating.

    DelPercio was never indicted or charged for any involvement.

    Four other officers were indicted for misconduct in office. Charges against one of those officers were dismissed and his record was recently expunged.

    In June 2018, attorneys for Jane Doe 3 filed a 30-page response to the defendants' motion for summary judgement.

    The filing reads that she opposed the motion but “stipulates to the dismissal of all claims against Defendant Thomas DelPercio to be confirmed by a separate filing.”
