COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A former Columbus County detention officer faces more sex crimes after a grand jury indictment.

In all, Tommy McPherson, 56, faces eight counts of indecent liberties with a child, four counts of statutory sex offense with a 13-, 14- or 15-year-old and five counts of sex offense with a child.

The prosecutor handling the case says the crimes involve a now 15-year-old girl who was eight when they started.

Deputies arrested McPherson Monday on one count of indecent liberties with a child. McPherson quit his job at the jail last week before the allegations were made to law enforcement.
