SUMTER COUNTY, SC (WIS) - A Sumter man has been arrested on several child sex charges.

The Sumter County Sheriff's Office says deputies arrested Larry Noal Eaton, 73, on Wednesday. He is charged with two counts of criminal sexual conduct with a minor, victim under 11; two counts of disseminating obscene material and one additional charge. 

An incident report indicates a Sumter area elementary school guidance counselor alerted the sheriff's office to the possible crimes.

According to the arrest warrants, Eaton is accused of engaging in sexual activity with a girl, about 8 to 10 years old, between April of 2012 and January 2015 at his home. The warrants say during that time, Eaton showed pornographic videos to the alleged victim before assaulting her.

Eaton is being held at the Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center without bond. 

Investigators say more charges could be filed.
