SC teen charged with sexually abusing 4 boys

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - A 16-year-old Spartanburg boy is charged with sexually abusing four boys as young as 7.

The teen was charged as an adult Wednesday with four counts of criminal sexual conduct with a minor.

Spartanburg County investigators say the teen lives near the victims. A police report says that after the victims stopped going to his home, he went to theirs and threatened and bribed them not to say anything.

Investigators say there may be more victims.

Arrest warrants allege the incidents occurred between Oct. 1 and Dec. 14.

The warrants say 3 of the victims were 7, 9 and 10 years old. The fourth is between 11 and 14 years old.
