A security officer in North Carolina is facing several charges after allegedly sexually assaulting a juvenile in his care while transporting them to a facility.
David Logan Marsh is a 31-year-old from Waxhaw, North Carolina. He was employed with G4S as a security officer.
On September 6, Marsh was working a shift, and he was charged with providing transportation for an underage patient with an Involuntary Commitment Order.
Marsh was to take the child from Rowan County to Charlotte for the transfer. The trip to the destination is approximately 40 miles.
During the ride to the facility in Charlotte, Marsh allegedly had a sexual encounter with the young patient.
When they arrived at the destination, the alleged victim spoke with one of the medical professionals. The juvenile reported that Marsh took advantage of them sexually while they were on the road.
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department’s Crimes Against Children Unit was informed, and they opened an investigation into the claims of the sexual abuse.
Two days after the alleged sexual assault, Marsh was asked to speak with the authorities at the Law Enforcement Center.
The man reportedly consented to the interview, and he discussed the situation with the detectives.
When the interview concluded, the deputies detained Marsh. He was sent to the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office for processing.
Marsh was taken into custody and booked into the Mecklenburg County Jail. It is expected that he will face charges for suspicion of statutory rape of a child greater than 6-years-old, statutory sex offense, two counts of sexual activity by a custodian, and two counts of indecent liberties with a child.
At the time of this writing, according to the Mecklenburg County Jail inmate roster, Marsh is still incarcerated.
