COLUMBIA, SC (WMBF) – A tentative criminal trial date has been set for a former Horry County police detective accused of misconduct while in office.

According to information from the South Carolina Attorney General’s Office, the trial of Troy Allen Large is tentatively set for Sept. 18, pending the decline of a plea offer.

Last September, Large was indicted on six counts of misconduct in office and five counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct. He was terminated from the Horry County Police Department on July 31, 2015 after an internal investigation into sexual harassment allegations.

The indictments allege Large knowingly used coercion to engage in sexual battery with several victims and knowingly engaged in inappropriate relationships with victims of cases he was investigating.

Three other former HCPD officers - Darryl Williams, Todd Cox and Luke Green - were also indicted last fall. Trial dates for them have not been set as of yet.

According to the SCAG, plea offers have been made for all the defendants. If they don’t accept them, Large will go to trial first in Horry County the week of Sept. 18.

The deadline to accept a plea deal is July 21. 

Williams was indicted on nine counts of misconduct in office, while Cox and Green face 16  and three counts of the same charge, respectively. 

According to the indictments, Williams is accused of knowingly failing to properly investigate alleged crimes and using his county vehicle and county paid time to work for the state.

The indictments allege Cox knowingly closed cases without proper investigation, and Green is accused of an inappropriate sexual relationship with an informant.

In addition to the criminal case, Large was also named in or involved in a number of different lawsuits against the county and the HCPD.
