LANDRUM, SC  – A man is accused of incest after a teen became pregnant in Greenville Co. in 1977.

John Ancil Plumbly, 74, is charged with two counts of Criminal Sexual Conduct with a minor and Incest.

The victim said Plumbly started sexually assaulting her when she was 7-years-old.

She became pregnant at 16, according to the warrant.

The warrant says a DNA test shows Plumbly is the biological father.

Greenville Co. investigators say they interviewed Plumbly at his home, at which time he was already on court ordered, GPS monitoring for a previous charge in Pickens Co.

They say Plumbly cut off his ankle monitor and was on the run from Law Enforcement.

On Sunday, September 18, 2016, Plumbley was captured and placed in the Greenville County Detention Center where he currently sits without bond.
