Attorney General Alan Wilson announces 25-year sentence for man who sexually abused children

(COLUMBIA, S.C.) – South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson announces that Edward “Dustin” McIntyre, 25, of Ruby, SC, pleaded guilty to two counts of Criminal Sexual Conduct First degree, and Judge Michael Nettles sentenced McIntyre to 25 years in prison sentence today.

In May of 2020, a six-year-old and a seven-year-old reported that they had been sexually abused by the defendant multiple times. They alleged that he took them out to a cabin in the woods, along with his cousin, and both men sexually assaulted the girls. McIntyre initially denied the allegations, but ultimately confessed to abusing both girls on numerous occasions. Permanent restraining orders were issued for the victims, and McIntyre will have to register as a sex offender upon release.

Jamie Myers of the Chesterfield County Sheriff’s Office investigated the case. Assistant Attorney General Kinli Abee prosecuted the case, with the help of victim advocate Glynna Fogle, paralegal Whitney Malloy, and law clerk Madison Terry.
