Special Olympics counselor faces more charges for sex crimes

RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A Special Olympics counselor accused of having sex with one of the participants at a Mt. Pleasant hotel last weekend now faces additional charges.

On Thursday, the Richland County Sheriff's Office charged 29-year-old Corneluis Davis and with second degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor. Davis, a Special Education teaching assistant at Brookland-Cayce High School, already faces the same charge from the Mt. Pleasant Police Department for a separate incident.

Davis is being detained at the Alvin S Glenn Detention Center and is expected to have a bond hearing at 8 p.m.

Mt. Pleasant police officers responded to the Quality Inn on Patriots Boulevard on Sunday after a woman told police that her daughter, a Special Olympian, may have been victimized. According to a police report, the girl said she had sexual intercourse with her teacher and counselor, Davis.

During the investigation, police said they also found a series of sexually explicit text messages and photos from Davis on the victim's phone.

According to investigators, when the girl was taken to MUSC, she told the nurse that she had sex with Davis Thursday night in Cayce and again on Friday night at the Quality Inn in Mt. Pleasant.
