Terrence Bryant, a 50-year-old South Carolina man was jailed Tuesday after he allegedly gave cigarettes and smokeless tobacco to three teenage boys as payment for letting him spank them.
According to Lexington Police, an investigation was launched after the father of a 12-year-old boy learned that his son had obtained a pack of Newport cigarettes from Bryant.
An investigation revealed that Bryant had given the boy cigarettes on at least five prior occasions in exchange for allowing him to spank the boy on his buttocks.
The investigation also revealed that Bryant allegedly gave smokeless tobacco to two 15-year-old boys on May 10 in exchange for spanking privileges.
The alleged spankings reportedly took place in the parking lot of the Pitt Stop convenience store where Bryant worked as a cashier.
Bryant was booked into the Lexington County Detention Center on three counts of committing a lewd act on a child under the age of 16. His bond has been set at $105,000.
