DARLINGTON — A 61-year-old man faces incest and sex crime charges after authorities say a near relative gave birth to his child.

Randie Graham of Cedar Ridge Road in the Dovesville community near Darlington was arrested Aug. 20, Darlington County Sheriff J. Wayne Byrd said in a statement.

“Mr. Graham was identified through specific genetic markers which showed a DNA connection when tests were conducted after the victim gave birth,” Byrd said.

Graham is charged with second-degree criminal sexual conduct and incest.

Second-degree criminal sexual conduct occurs when a person “uses aggravated coercion to accomplish sexual battery,” according to the S.C. Code of Laws. The felony carries a maximum 20-year sentence.

State law defines incest as sexual intercourse between partners in 17 specified family relationships. Those convicted face up to a year in prison and a $500 fine.
