Charleston man accused of sex assault on 2 children

Posted: Updated:

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCIV) -- A Charleston man was accused of inappropriately touching two small children who were briefly in his care.

According to an affidavit, 44-year-old Maurice Marshal Harris was charged with second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor. Police say the incident happened while the children stayed with him over the summer.

During an interview with the victim, investigators learned that Harris allegedly pulled down his pants and tried to force the girl into a series of sex acts.

"You'll always be my little nasty," he reportedly told the 12-year-old girl during the incident.

She told investigators that Harris tried repeatedly to sexually violate her between May and September.

The assault was reported on Oct. 25, deputies said.
