Goose Creek High School employee arrested after girl claims sexual abuse

Posted: Updated:

On July 22nd, a man flagged down a Hanahan police officer to tell him that his daughter had been sexually assaulted.

The man said the child, who is under 16, was crying and told her father that Arthur Prioleau touched her on the chest and on the buttocks several times within a week.

She said that Prioleau told her not to tell his wife what had happened.

On July 24th, the case was assigned to an investigator, and the child was later given a forensic interview.

During the interview, the child said that she had been touched in the breasts, buttocks and vagina areas on the outside of her clothes.

On August 28th, Prioleau was picked up by police at the Sonoco Gas Station at 1519 Redbank Road. He was charged with Criminal Sexual Conduct with a Minor 3rd degree.

Prioleau is an employee at Goose Creek High School, but he is not a teacher. The district has placed him on administrative leave.

The child is not a student at the school, and the alleged crime did not take place on school property.

The school district did release a statement on the case, "Berkeley County School District holds our employees to the highest level of professional excellence.

As soon as the district learned of the charge and alleged incidents and in compliance with District policy, the employee was placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

Please note that we may not disclose other specifics about the employee's employment as investigations regarding personnel matters are protected by privacy rights."

Prioleau went through bond court on the August 28th.
