CHESTER, SC (WBTV) -

A South Carolina woman has been arrested for criminal sexual conduct with a minor, according to a release from the Chester County Sheriff's Office.

Amy Lynn Harris, 26, was arrested on April 12, and charged with one count each of first and third degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.

On March 10, deputies said they received information that Harris had sexually assaulted the complainant's juvenile daughter, who was 8-years-old at the time.

During the investigation, it was learned that on or about December 20, Harris did commit a "lewd and lascivious act upon the victim for her own sexual gratification," deputies told WBTV.

She also committed a sexual battery on the 8-year-old between May 1, and August 31, 2012, officials said.
