Brandon Partain was sentenced to an 18-year prison sentence for a handful of charges involving inappropriate conduct with minors.

ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) - Solicitor David R. Wagner says a Central man will spend nearly two decades in prison for a handful of charges involving inappropriate conduct with minors dating back to 2017.

31-year-old Brandon Drake Partain was arrested by Anderson County deputies in November of that year on a slew of charges, and on Thursday entered a guilty plea for unlawful conduct towards a child, dissemination of harmful material to minors, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and 1st degree assault and battery.

Wagner says Partain, a registered sex offender, was accused of fondling a minor on top of the child's clothing. He also was accused of showing porn to several children, smoking weed near two children under 10 years of age, and even allowing a 13-year-old to smoke with him.

Partain will spend 18 years of an active sentence behind bars.

His original slew of charges, per the Anderson County Detention Center roster online, included:

  • Three counts of 3rd Degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor
  • Two counts of 1st Degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor
  • Two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor
  • Two counts of distributing harmful material to minors
  • One count of neglect by legal custodian

He also had a hold for another agency.
