A 19-year-old South Carolina man accused of three counts of sexual harassment who struck an application contract that allowed him to avoid jail time last month was arrested Monday morning for disorderly conduct and breach of his probation, according to court records and arrest reports.
Bowen Gray Turner originally faced two counts of first-degree criminal sexual misconduct for the incidents that occurred in October 2018 and June 2019, but later agreed to plead guilty to first-degree assault and only a count of batteries.
Circuit Judge Markle Dennis sentenced Turner to five years in prison on April 8 under the Youth Offenders Act.
“If he has completed five years without any offenses and has done all the necessary counseling, he does not have to register as a sex offender,” Dennis said at the hearing last month.

Turner, who had a “strong smell of alcoholic beverages”, gave the deputy a “false response” to what he was doing, initially saying he had come from a nearby bar but then said he had come out of the forest or was returning. From a gas station.
Turner eventually told deputies that he had three drinks at a local bar that he bought from a bartender using his credit card, according to an arrest report.

Another alleged victim of Turner, Chloe Bass, has spoken publicly about being at a party in June 2019 when Turner pulled her into the back of a truck around 3 a.m. and sexually assaulted her.
