Oconeean arrested on child sex charge

A 31-year old man near Seneca has been arrested on charges of criminal sexual conduct with a minor under the age of 11 years old. The Oconee Sheriff’s Office reported the arrest of Dustin Stuart Reif took place Friday, as officers responded to an anonymous report that a child had been sexually assaulted. On their way to Reif’s home, officers say, they saw Reif’s vehicle disregard a stop sign at Keowee School Road at Evatt Road. A chase then ensued, but it ended quickly when officers deployed stop sticks near the Bountyland intersection.
