A Columbia man charged with seven felonies for sex crimes against multiple children remains jailed without bond and will be arraigned on Monday.
47-year-old James Cecil Bennett is charged with three counts of statutory sodomy and four other felonies.
Graphic court documents obtained by 939 the Eagle say Bennett allegedly molested a six and a seven-year-old. The Columbia Police Department’s probable cause statement also says Bennett burned one of the children with a hot metal spoon and hung the child upside down in a closet from the closet rod.
He also allegedly punched and kicked the children, according to court documents.
