CAMDEN, SC (WIS) - Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews says an 11-year-old girl reported she was being molested by a family member to her mom and step-father.

Matthews says the child told her parents that the family member, identified as 35-year-old Paris Nates III, has been sexually molesting her when she was between 6 and 10 years old.

A forensic interview was performed on the young girl and Nates was taken into custody and confessed to the crime during an interview with deputies.

Nates has been charged with 1st degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor under 11 and criminal incest.

Matthews says more arrests may come pending an investigation of Nates' computer.
