DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - The girls' basketball coach at Ashley Ridge High School has been arrested and charged with second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.

According to the affidavit, the incidents happened while Tron Grant was the student concern specialist at Baptist Hill High School between September and November 2006.

Grant received a $25,000 personal recognizance bond Tuesday morning.

The victim who is now an adult gave a statement to a Charleston County Sheriff's Office detective on Feb. 2 saying that when she was 15 years old, Grant took advantage of her when she was in a vulnerable state, according to the affidavit.

Grant picked up the victim and had sex with the victim in his vehicle and again at his apartment on separate occasions, the affidavit stated.

Dorchester District 2 spokeswoman Pat Raynor said Grant is on paid administrative leave which is required by state law.

District officials say Grant has been employed as security guard at Ashley Ridge High School for three years and has been the girls' basketball coach for two years.
