A Conway man was released on $10,000 bail Wednesday after he was charged with four counts of sexual assault in connection with a young girl being inappropriately touched, according to authorities.

William Chester Clemons, 43, of Conway was booked into J. Reuben Long Detention Center on Oct. 30 on charges of first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor under the age of 11 and three counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor between the ages of 11 and 14, according to jail records.

Horry County police charged Clemons after receiving information from authorities in West Virginia that a girl reported in October she had been sexually assaulted, according to a police report.
