Richland County Sex Trafficking Arrest

7/21/20

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott announces the arrest of one man on sex trafficking and other charges.

Daniel Korbin Sterling Thomas (DOB: 1/9/2001) is charged with sex trafficking, two counts of criminal sexual conduct with a minor 11-14 years old, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Thomas’ arrest is in conjunction with an investigation into a missing person’s case.

On Monday, July 20, at approximately 3:30 a.m., deputies responded to a home in the 400 block of Seton Hall Drive after being notified that a missing juvenile was there.

After a standoff with deputies, Thomas came out of the home and was taken into custody. Deputies then conducted a search of the home and located the juvenile inside.

Thomas is being held without bond at Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.

Additional arrests may be forthcoming in this case.
