SC man spanked boys after selling them smokes

  • Follow Crime & courts

LEXINGTON, S.C. — Lexington County deputies say they arrested a 50-year-old convenience store clerk who sold cigarettes and smokeless tobacco to boys after they let him spank them.

Deputies said Tuesday that they started investigating Terrence Bryant after the father of a 12-year-old boy found him with a pack of Newport cigarettes earlier this month.

Detectives say Bryant sold the boy cigarettes at least five times from his pickup truck, spanking the child in the parking lot over his clothes.

Deputies say Bryant also sold tobacco to two 15-year-old boys after spanking them.

Bryant is charged with three counts of lewd act upon a child under age 16. He is awaiting a bond hearing at the Lexington County jail and deputies say he doesn't have an attorney yet.

Okay, which is it? The

Okay, which is it? The article title says he spanked them AFTER selling them the smokes (as if in punishment), the article text says spanked them BEFORE selling them the smokes (which sounds more like a pedophile).

Wow...hard to believe that

Wow...hard to believe that anyone finds humor in what a possible pedophile is doing to kids as young as 12 (possibly younger too, who knows?).
