The sheriff's office had obtained 12 arrest warrants charging Harold Bennon Cartwright III with first- and third-degree criminal sexual conduct, two counts of criminal sexual conduct with a minor younger than 16 and eight counts of committing or attempting a lewd act on a child younger than 16.

The charges stem from allegations that Cartwright inappropriately touched, performed sexual acts on and had intercourse with two girls younger than 16 between Oct. 17, 2003, and Feb. 7, 2011, in North Augusta, Clearwater and Trenton, according to the warrants.

He is being held at the Aiken County Detention Center.

He won't do anything close to

He won't do anything close to 10-20. Look at the offenders currently living in your neighborhood. Note the date they were charged and the date they were released, or the current date. Augusta is slapped full of violent rapists and child molesters that did <5 years.

He needs to have his trial.

He needs to have his trial. If he is guilty then take him to the swamp and let the wild hogs eat him.
