SC Man Charged with 27 Sex Crimes


By Alicia Barnes

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) _ A maintenance worker at a Greenville County church is charged with 27 sex crimes dating back nearly 40 years.

Deputies say a man told investigators last week that 58-year-old Timothy Anders sexually assaulted him for eight years starting in 1981 when he was 10 years old. Authorities say a woman then came forward and said Anders sexually assaulted her starting in 1976 when she was 6 years old.

Investigators say both victims reported being attacked at Anders' home, his car and Wrenn Memorial Baptist Church where he worked.

Deputies think there may be more victims who have not come forward.

Anders is being held in the Greenville County jail without bond. It wasn't known if he had a lawyer.
