A 21-year-old Rembert man charged in June with two counts of lewd conduct toward a minor between 14 and 16 years of age was granted a $50,000 surety bond on Tuesday.
At-large Circuit Court Judge D. Craig Brown granted the bond for Kentrell Burris, of Rembert, giving the man a 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew and telling him he is to have no unsupervised interaction with children.
Burris has been held at Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center since his arrest on June 3, according to court records. The charges stem from a report filed in December 2012 by a 37-year-old woman who told officers her daughter accused Burris of "groping her buttocks" when the girl woke up one morning.
Burris fled out the back door of his home after "a family member told (him) that he had better come talk (to the deputy) because he was going to jail," according to reports.The victim also gave another statement in June before Burris' arrest that she was inappropriately touched.
