Sheriff's Most Wanted Accused Molester Arrested

web posted July 23, 2013

EDGEFIELD The Edgefield County Sheriff's Office has cleared another name off of their Most Wanted list with the arrest of accused child molester Edward James Gilkerson, 27, of Woodruff, South Carolina. He remained on the Sheriff's Most Wanted list for at least a year and escaped capture once by running from deputies trying to take him into custody. He was captured in Florida and was transported back to Edgefield County over the weekend.

Gilkerson is charged with criminal sexual conduct in the first degree with a minor under 11 years of age and theft of electrical current, an unrelated charge to the molestation.

He remains behind bars at the Edgefield County Detention Center without bond on the criminal sexual conduct in the first degree charge pending a Circuit Court bond hearing. Bond is expected to be denied due to Gilkerson already proving he is a flight risk.

No Circuit Court bond hearing date was provided in online court records.
