Child Molestation Suspect in Custody

He's already out on bond on similar charges, and now investigators say last month Shawn John sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl in Beaufort. They claim he took the girl to a park, grabbed her hand, told her to fondle herself while he took pictures and touched himself.

They also say he threatened to harm her family if she told.

He's in the Beaufort County Detention Center with a $1 million bond. The previous charges, from two years ago, say he had sex with a ten-year-old girl.
