Timothy Darren Sheard, 46, of 337 Emerald Road, Greenwood was arrested Wednesday and charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.

Greenwood County deputies were called to a school Jan. 24, where a guidance counselor said that a 12-year-old girl said she was sexually assaulted by a man, according to a report.

The deputy waited for an investigator to come and speak with the girl, and school officials were asked to notify the state Department of Social Services, the report said.
