Camden, SC (WACH) - A Camden man has been charged with molesting two small children after his girlfriend notified the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office.

Joseph Alton Boone, 32, was arrested Friday and charged with two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a victim under 11 years of age.

Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews said his office received a complaint from the childrenâ??s mother that her 3-year-old girl and 4-year-old boy had been sexually assaulted by Boone, her live in boyfriend..

The two children, along with a third child, 1, have been placed with the SC Department of Social Services.

â??The facts of this case are too explicit to describe in a public forum,â?? said Sheriff Matthews. "These children will suffer from the effects of this abuse the rest of their lives. I just hope they can be placed in a loving, caring home. Booneâ??s actions toward these two small children are despicable.â??

Boone is currently incarcerated at the Kershaw County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing.
