Alleged Charleston Sexual Abuse: Bus Driver Accused Of Fondling

South Carolina sexual abuse attorneys want to warn locals about an alleged fondling case that occurred on a lowcountry bus. Gerald Limehouse, an employee of transportation company Tri-County Link, was charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct. According to the records of the Dorchester County Sheriff’s office, Limehouse was arrested on Wednesday, February 17, 2010.

The sexually assaulted a South Carolina woman, whose identity has not been revealed, is a 26-year old woman who took the Limehouse’s route home daily from the adult day center she frequented. The woman’s family said that she is “mentally challenged,” and they knew that something was wrong when she told them that the bus driver and her had a “secret.”

Limehouse was arraigned and has been released after posting $100,000 in bail on Friday, February 19, 2010. Parents told authorities that their daughter told them that her and the bus driver had a special route. She then told them that Limehouse had kissed her and fondled her multiple times in the early weeks of this February. Tri-County Link has not yet released a statement and cannot be reached for comments.
