Lexington County, SC (WLTX) - A nurse is facing charges after Lexington County deputies say he induced a 16-year-oldpatient to engage in a sexual performance.

Kerston Kyle Turner, 28, is charged with engaging a child under the age of 18 in a sexual performance and first-degree assault and battery.

Deputies say back on January 14th, Turner was treating a boy at a West Columbia medical facility, when he offered to give the teen a medical screening test in a bathroom at the facility. Officers say he convinced the boy to give this sexual performance, which Turner then watched.

Deputies say the screening test was not put into the boy's medical file, and was not medically necessary.

The incident came to light after the mother of the boy took him to the hospital for an examination after he told her about the incident.
