Johnston County Commissioner charged with indecent liberties with child

SMITHFIELD, NC (WNCN) — A Johnston County commissioner has been indicted on one charge of indecent liberties with a child, the sheriff’s office announced Wednesday.

The Johnston County Sheriff’s Office said on June 6, a 13-year-old girl went to the sheriff’s office with her family. The girl told investigators she “had an inappropriate interaction with an adult male acquaintance.”

After an investigation and consultation with the district attorney’s office, the sheriff’s office said detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Richard D. Braswell on charges of indecent liberties with a child.

Braswell was arrested on Wednesday.

Braswell was sworn in as the Johnston County Commissioner for the District 3 seat in December 2021.

At the time, the county said Braswell was a lifelong resident of Johnston County.

They said he worked as a real estate developer and is a construction company owner and retired chief executive officer.

A district press release at the time said he had previously served as chairman of the Moccasin Creek Board for 22 years and had been a member of the Land Use Committee, the Princeton Lions Club, the Princeton Booster Club, the Little League Board and the Boy Scouts Legacy Club.

The Johnston County Sheriff’s Office said Braswell’s bail was secured at $35,000.

Until the Supreme Court released the criminal discovery, the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office said they would not provide any additional information.
