MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – A man has been arrested for criminal sexual conduct with a minor.

Barron Jaquan Williams, 25, is charged with criminal sexual conduct with a minor in the third degree, according to warrants obtained by News13.

Williams remains in jail as of 1:20 p.m. Tuesday pending a bond hearing, booking records show.
