Liberty man found guilty of sex crimes against minors

PICKENS — A Liberty man convicted on multiple sex charges against minors has been sentenced to nearly 30 years in jail for his crimes.

13th Judicial Circuit Solicitor Walt Wilkins announced Friday that a 359-month sentence was handed down for Damon Tyler Brown, 28, who was convicted on three counts of first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor, one count of first-degree sexual conduct with a minor and three counts of lewd act on a minor by a Pickens County jury.

Judge G. Edward Welmaker sentenced Brown.

The crimes were reported in 2009 when one of Brown’s three victims reported the abuse to a school resource officer, according to Wilkins. Wilkins said that the crimes occurred between 2003 and 2006, and the victims were an 8-year-old boy, a 10-year-old boy and a 10-year-old girl.
