MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (AP/WIS) - Investigators are saying there might be two additional cases against a teaching assistant from Cayce charged with having sex with a Special Olympian in the Lowcountry.
29-year-old Cornelius Davis of Hopkins is a special education teaching assistant at Brookland-Cayce High School and is charged with second-degree criminal sexual conduct.
A police report says Davis was traveling as a counselor and basketball coach for Special Olympics.
Police say they were called to a hotel Sunday by the girl's mother, who reported her daughter told her she had sex with her teacher. Her age was not released.
The report says the girl told a nurse she had sex with the suspect in Cayce on Thursday and Friday in Mount Pleasant.
Cayce police are investigating the victim's allegation that she was also assaulted last Thursday somewhere in Cayce.
A Department of Public Safety spokesman says the location of that incident is unclear.
Authorities are also trying to find out if Davis might have been accused of another sexual assault in Richland County.
Special Olympics representative Barry Coats says the organization is heartbroken over the allegations.
"I mean, you mention that it's embarrassing and really to us, it's hurtful," Coats said. "We consider our athletes part of our family. I've been here 25 years. This is a lifestyle for me. And most of our staff have been here for 10+ years, so our athletes are our family."
Davis has been placed on administrative leave and is not allowed on school property.
It was not clear if Davis has a lawyer.
