A former Hampton County sheriff's deputy was indicted on Thursday on several counts of child molestation charges.

A Hampton County grand jury indicted 52-year-old Larry Heyward on one count of criminal sexual conduct with a minor between 11 and 14 years old and committing a lewd act on a minor and misconduct in public office.

Heyward worked for the Hampton County Sheriff's Office and worked as a school resource officer. He was fired after a male student came forward to report he had been abused several times between August 2010 and December 2012, according to the Fourteenth Circuit Solicitor's Office.

The State Law Enforcement Division is investigating.
