A Charleston carpet cleaner, Michael Wayne Callegan, is accused of sexual assault by a juvenile victim, according to Charleston County Sheriff’s Office deputies.
Deputies say they met with the alleged victim on Wednesday, January 10 in reference to ongoing sexual assaults.

Deputies say that the victim said last Christmas break in 2016, she drove Callegan in her passenger seat where she was sexually assaulted.
The victim also told police that in the past Callegan would rub her back and in the process would then touch her chest.
