      Corrections officer arrested for criminal sexual conduct with teenage girl

      NICHOLAS SHELDON BROWN, 34
      COLUMBIA (WACH)- A SCDOC corrections officer is in jail accused of sexually abusing a now-teenage girl, as early as when the girl was 10.

      Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said Nicholas Sheldon Brown 34, was arrested after the girl told her school resource officer the abuse began about 4 years ago when she was 10-years-old.

      Brown was taken to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center. Department of Corrections spokesperson Clark Newsom said Brown is on unpaid administrative leave. Brown worked at the Kirkland pre-release center.
