New Allegation of Abuse Against Lowcountry Church Volunteer
NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WTAT-TV) – New allegation in North Carolina of sexual abuse against Lowcountry church volunteer, Jacop Robert Lee Hazlett.
Police are investigating a claim that Hazlett abused a seven-year-old boy when he lived in the area just north of Charlotte.
The twenty-eight-year-old is currently behind bars in North Charleston for sexually assaulting a 3-year-old boy in a bathroom and eight additional charges. Investigators say surveillance video from the church shows Jacob Hazlett fondling a three year old boy, even taking pictures of the child.
William Applegate, attorney for the alleged victims, believes that there could be more victims due to the pattern of Hazlett’s behavior.
