Man Arrested For Child Sex Crimes

A Washington man was arrested for sex crimes with a child nearly 20 years after the alleged crime occurred.

On November 30, 2012, the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a sex offense against a child that occurred on Cherry Road in Washington nearly 20 years ago.

As a result of the investigation, deputies arrested 60-year-old Jimmie Riddle of Washington and charged him with First Degree Sex Offense with a Child on Friday.

Riddle was taken to the Beaufort County Detention Center on a $30,000 secured bond.
