SCRANTON, SC (WMBF) A Scranton man could spend up to 20 years in prison after investigators say he had sex with a 14-year-old.

Captain Michael Nunn, spokesman for the Florence County Sheriff's Office, tells WMBF News that 25-year-old Brandon A. Singletary of Scranton was booked into the Florence County Detention Center on Tuesday.

Investigators believe that on March 19 Singletary had sex with a 14-year-old in his Scranton home, but did not elaborate on the relationship between Singletary and the victim.
