Greenville County Sheriff's deputies have arrested six people, two of whom reside in Greer, in connection with the sexual abuse of a young girl.
On April 15, deputies said someone called the Sheriff's Office and said that a young girl allegedly had been sexually abused from age 5 until she was 12, by Norman Quinton Hunt Sr. After an investigation and determining probable cause in the case, deputies were able to charge Hunt with first degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor, committing a lewd act on a child, incest and disseminating obscene material to a minor.
The investigation also revealed that the victim, now 13, had legal guardians living in Greer at the time who were aware of the abuse and did not report the incidents to the authorities. The guardians, Norman Quinton Hunt, Jr., and Olivia Mae Ross-Hunt, allegedly used the information regarding the alleged abuse to extort money from Norman Hunt, Sr., demanding money be deposited into their account in exchange for their silence.
Norman Hunt Jr. and Mae Ross-Hunt are each charged with blackmail and unlawful neglect of a child.
Less than a month after the initial complaint was filed, it was revealed that the victim allegedly engaged in sexual activity with two 16-year-old boys and a 20-year-old man. The victim, who was 12 years old at the time of some of the encounters, had just turned 13 in the other alleged incidents.
Zach Eubanks, 16, of Greenville and Daniel Alzate, 16, of Simpsonville are being charged as adults. The teens, along with 20-year-old Joseph Samuel Wood of Simpsonville are charged with criminal sexual conduct with a minor in the second degree, and committing a lewd act on a minor.
