Woman arrested for sexual assault of child at church

Carol Diane Britto

(Updated Aug. 29, 2:26 p.m.) 
Sex crime involved four year old victim

Authorities have learned that a Taylorsville woman apparently took indecent liberties with a small child at an Alexander County church.

Acccording to a news release from the Alexander County Sheriff's Office, on Thursday, August 28, 2014, investigators from the Sheriff’s Office charged 52 year old Carol Diane Britto, of Taylorsville, with one count of first degree statutory sex offense and one count of indecent liberties with a child. The alleged offenses occurred in the summer of 2012. The victim at the time of the incident was four years old. 

The allegations stem from information obtained by the Alexander County Department of Social Services that state Ms. Britto was watching children at a local church and the incidents occurred on church property during their services.  Britto was first made aware of the allegations in August of 2013.  

After months of investigation and conferring with the District Attorneys’ Office, warrants were obtained on Ms. Britto and she was arrested at her residence without incident. She is currently being held in the Alexander County Detention Center under a $750,000 secured bond. She is scheduled for her first appearance on September 8 in District Court in Taylorsville.

This investigation is continuing and may involve other victims.

Authorities have declined to release the name of the church where the crimes allegedly took place.

I know Carol's family, and have had the pleasure of meeting Carol, and I'm appalled by the fact that this kind, gentle woman is found guilty in the court of public opinion and media hype, before being proven innocent. I HOPE the accusers are as harshly investigated as well, because the damage they may have done to this poor woman is irrevocable.

I know this woman very well. I can not imagine that this is true. I think the people saying these things should be more closely investigated.

If she is really guilty,she ought to be ashamed to have sexually abuse the child.
