Officials with the Mount Pleasant Police Department made the arrest. Investigators with the Charleston County and Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office assisted in the case.
He is charged with one count of criminal solicitation of a minor.
Brown was a teacher at Odyssey Educational Center (School) in Dorchester District 4. He was placed on administrative leave the day of his arrest, according to records from the SC State Board of Education.
