A 69-year-old Walterboro faces four counts of criminal sexual conduct with a minor based on a series of alleged incidents involving a teenaged female.
Billy Wayne Herndon, 69, of Walterboro was arrested on Sept. 16 on the charges and the case has since been examined by the grand jury.
According to the arrest affidavits, Herndon, who was freed on $60,000 bond, is charged with allegedly fondling the juvenile on four occasions between September 2018 and May 2019.
The affidavits state that on two of the reported occasions after the female resisted his advances, he allegedly said, “Why don’t you like that?” In May of 2019, he allegedly asked her “Why do you say no every time?” after she reportedly rebuffed that attempt.
The reported incidents began when the female was 13 years old and continued while she was 14.

    I think you need to get facts straight before you publish stuff in your paper.

    All lies. Trusting in God for the truth will come to be known!

    Yes, God watches over his children, you can’t hide from the truth. God sees and knows the truth. It took great courage for this young girl to come forward. Who knows what damage has been done to her from such a tragic event caused by this. Those that are so quick to judge when none of us were there. Stop and think what if it is true, what if it were you or your child the victim of this man’s evil. May God reveal the whole truth of all the evil that has taken place with this sinful man. May God have mercy and forgiveness for us all.

    It shocks that dis man if he did dis or didn’t do dis being seen as guilty before going to court. How can justice be done when in the public eye he be guilty already. We is quick to judge any more. I hopes the child gets her some help and I’s hope that ifs he did justice be dones but peoples judge before we know da stories. Hopes justice for dem as GOD sees is does rite where both are concerned

    You lot are very invested in defending a child molester.

    Wonder why that is.
