A Washington man is accused of raping a 14 year old girl last week in Beaufort County.

Deputies have charged Hallie "Ronnie" Holloway III with second degree rape, statutory rape of a person 13, 14 or 15 years old by a defendant more than six years older than the victim, and indecent liberties with a child.

The 41-year-old Holloway turned himself in at the Magistrate's Office Monday where bond was set at $300,000.

Deputies say they were alerted to the rape on January 9th. They say it happened on Whootentown Road, and the victim was sexually assaulted in a vehicle that was parked on the side of the road.
