Lexington County man charged with criminal sexual conduct with minor

LEXINGTON, S.C. – A Swansea man has been arrested and charged with third degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor under the age of 11.

Michael Shawn Smith, 34, is charged with inappropriately kissing a victim multiple times between December 2016 and March 2017, according to arrest warrants.

“This arrest and charge are part of an ongoing investigation,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Detectives are looking into other incidents in which Smith might have involvement.”

Smith was arrested and released from the Lexington County Detention Center Wednesday after a judge set his bond at $15,000.

Anyone with information that could be helpful to investigators should call Crimestoppers at 888-Crime-SC, Koon said. Anonymous tips can also be submitted at www.LexingtonSheriff.com.
