(Walhalla, SC)--------------------------------------A Criminal Sexual Conduct investigation by investigators from the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office has led to an arrest of a Longcreek woman today on 219 separate counts.
37 year old Janice Allen was booked into the Oconee County Detention Center around 2:36pm after turning herself in earlier this afternoon at the Law Enforcement Center in Walhalla. Allen has been charged with 17 counts of Criminal Sexual Conduct with a Minor – Second Degree and 202 counts of Disseminating Harmful Material to a Minor. The investigation only involved one minor victim.
The Sheriff’s Office began an investigation on May 19th after a School Resource Officer received information of reports of sexual offenses. The investigation was turned over to the Criminal Investigations Division.
Based upon evidence that was gathered during the investigation, it was determined that Allen and the victim engaged in sexual relations during a time period between January of 2020 and May of 2021. Allen also disseminated obscene material to the minor from February of 2020 to May of 2021.
The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office is continuing its investigation and in order to preserve its integrity, and that of the victim, the Sheriff’s Office will not be releasing any further information at this time, including any information that could in anyway identify the victim in this case.
