GREENVILLE, S.C. — A man working as a security guard has been charged with having sex with a minor.

The Greenville News reported 25-year-old Paul Matthew Cason is charged with criminal sexual conduct involving a 13-year-old girl he was taking from a Greenville Health System facility to a Charleston health facility.

Cason is charged with second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor between ages 11 and 14. He also was charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct after investigators said he committed or tried to commit a lewd act on a victim under age 16.

It was not clear if Cason has an attorney.

Investigators say the assault happened in November.

Greenville Health System spokeswoman Sandy Dees says the system is cooperating with police.

American Services says Cason resigned.
