A Myrtle Beach couple were charged in connection with a juvenile being sexually assaulted by the man, according to authorities.
Thomas J. Tibbs, 36, was charged with second-degree criminal sexual conduct, while Jennifer Nicole Tibbs, 35, was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor and unlawful neglect of a child, according to Myrtle Beach Jail records.
The couple are being held at J. Reuben Long Detention Center. Thomas Tibbs is being held on $120,000 bond, while Jennifer Tibbs is being held on $15,000 bond.
The charges stemmed from earlier this month when a juvenile, whose age was not listed in the report, told police that in April she was sexually assaulted at an apartment at 6505 Hawthorne Lane by Thomas Tibbs, according to a police report. The victim told police that the couple are “swingers” and use drugs and alcohol.
She told police she came to Myrtle Beach in March from Ohio to live there and that she was given alcohol and cocaine by the couple, according to the report. The victim said after being given the drugs, she was sexually assaulted.
The victim posted about the incident on Facebook and her family learned of the incident and got involved, according to the report. Detectives are investigating the incidents.
