Father charged with incest

RIDGEWAY – Complaints of incest dating back four years have resulted in a North Carolina man, 40, being extradited to Fairfield County last month to face charges of criminal sexual conduct.

On April 29, 2014, the man’s adult daughter filed a report with the Stanley County, N.C. Sheriff’s Office in reference to her father’s sexual conduct toward her.

According to a report by Fairfield County Investigator William Dove, the daughter stated that she and her father moved to Ridgeway, around Jan. 22, 2014. She stated in an incident report that her father had gotten mad because she was working with black people and that he accused her of giving oral sex to men in the parking lot. In her report to the Sheriff’s Office, the woman stated that her father also accused her of being a prostitute for the people she worked with. The woman, however, stated that nothing like that happened with anyone she worked with.

The woman also stated that her father had said things sexual in nature to her and that, between Jan. 22, and Aug. 27, 2014, her father had forced her to have sex with him six or seven times, according to the incident report. She moved away from Ridgeway around Sept. 1, 2014.

After the woman complained to authorities, a warrant was issued for her father’s arrest. He was arrested last month in Salisbury, N.C. and extradited to Fairfield County.

Bond was denied. The father remains in the Fairfield County Detention Center.

According to Fairfield County Sheriff Will Montgomery, the incident is still under investigation. The Voice does not identify the victim or the accused in cases of incest.
