CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The man accused of sexually assaulting a minor waived his rights at a bond hearing Saturday morning.

Charles Samuel Warlick was charged with criminal sexual conduct with a minor in the first degree. He also faces a charge of third-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor, according to court records.

The North Charleston Police Department says that Warlick voluntarily came to the North Charleston police department for an interview on Friday.

Warlick confessed to inappropriately touching the minor eight years ago and confessed to touching a 15-year-old female within, but refused to provide the second victim's name, according to affidavits.

On Jan. 21, an investigation was launched to gather information about a minor's claims that Warlick sexually assaulted her eight years ago.

A police officer responded to a high school guidance office report that a student opened up about an assault that occurred when she was a child.

The victim told investigators Warlick, a church youth leader at the time, sexually assaulted her when she was 8-years-old.

The incident remains under investigation.

Warlick was being held at the Al Cannon Detention Center.
