Staff Report


WALHALLA — The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office arrested an Oconee County man on Thursday on multiple charges related to a criminal sexual conduct with a minor case.

David Leon Moore, 36, was booked into the Oconee County Detention Center around 7:50 p.m. on a Temporary Custody Order until warrants were obtained Friday.

Arrest warrants list Moore’s address as Brookfield Drive in Seneca while the Detention Center lists Moore’s address as Old Seneca Road in Westminster.

A deputy with the Uniform Patrol Division met with the victim and a family member on March 10 about reports of a sexual assault of a juvenile female.

It was determined that Moore had sexually assaulted the victim on multiple occasions between August 2016 and February 2017 at more than one location in Oconee County. The case involved only one victim.

Moore has been charged with seven counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor, nine counts of incest and five counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor for possessing materials that show a minor engaged in sexual activity or appearing in a state of nudity.

The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office is continuing its investigation.
