Washington Man Charged With Child Rape

A Beaufort County man is behind bars charged with the rape of a child.

James Mitchell, 22, of Duck Creek Shore Rd. in Washington, faces two counts of first degree rape of a child.

Authorities say Mitchell turned himself in just about a week after the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office says they started investigating the crime report. Officials say the crime took place in Pinetown, and the victim was a child under the age of 13.

Mitchell's bond is set at $30,000.
