COLUMBIA, SC (WOLO)– According to the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department, a man from Newberry County is accused of criminal sexual acts with a minor. Authorities say 53-year-old Michael Ray Stillinger was arrested Monday and charged with six counts of criminal sexual conduct with a minor as well as two counts of disseminating obscene material to a minor 12 years or younger.

“Our investigation started after a friend of the alleged victim shared information with us,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Based on our interviews with other people involved in the case, detectives determined Stillinger had sexual contact with a minor multiple times between 2009 and 2013.”

Deputies say Stillinger is also accused of using his phone to show sexual content to a minor in 2009 and 2010.
