Beaufort County Man Charged With Indecent Liberties

A Beaufort County man is in jail after deputies got a report of a sexual assault at a Cherry Road home.

Joshua Briley is charged with two counts of felony indecent liberties with a child and dissemination of obscenities to a minor.

WITN News has been told the girl was 11-years-old when it happened.

Deputies say the 21-year-old Briley turned himself in Thursday and went before a magistrate who set his bond at $20,000 secured.

    wow, you really do have all the info. you think you have all the info. first of all, the actual trial don,t start the 18th. try gettin it right. next, be sure you and your friends are there, all of them. then you going to hear and see the real truth. why did he turn himself in, because he has nothing to hide. if you really knew these people you,d know whats going on. but do you fear the real truth, then be there and here it. then who,s going to be surprised.

    well i've known josh a lil while and i always thought there was something not being shown by him. And yes i do believe this is true because b4 he even got locked up i heard about all of this! I think if the evidence proves he done it then he should do the time! Now life is pushing it a little to much! But i do believe in equal punishment. But i agree with mom's daughter they could not of arrested him if there was no evidence on him. Maybe some of you people who are close to him need to sit back and think for a sec! He willingly turned his self in? If i was not guilty i would of never stepped anywhere near that BCDC! But i think he should of never been let out that is just a crime that makes my stomach drop everytime i hear about it! well i hope all goes well the 18th you bet ill be there and so will all my friends just to make sure we get the whole story!

    Josh and Buzz, through the mess of this all, my heart won't allow me to hate. The love of family from the heart never goes away. My love and prayers are with you.

    My daughter attends school with the now 12 year old girl and they have been friends since kindergarden. I don't know this "Josh" but I know that this child would and could never make up such a thing. "tried twice" made the statement that she didn't like Josh in the first place. Well, if you were being hurt by someone, would you like them? I think NOT! Everyone here is feeling soooooo sorry for this "Josh" but why would a 12 year old girl go through all this if it were just a "grudge"?? Not to mention if there was a question or lack of evidence then why was he ever arrested? Look up the law. A law enforcement officer must investigate and have proof before warrants are issued. Think about it people. I am sure Josh was a good person to his friends from the comments here but if he had a "dark" side do you really think he would reveal it to you? Think about it. Know facts and don't be quick to judge.

    Have y'all forgotten about the whole "innocent until proven guilty." I know Josh personally. He wasn't very good with the ladies himself, so I doubt any of this happening. I know him and he would never do anything like this.
