Elkin An Elkin business owner and former volunteer with the Elkin Rescue Squad has been charged with taking indecent liberties with a minor, according to statement released by the Elkin Police Department.
Cosby was charged with the offense on Saturday, and then released by the Surry County Magistrates office on a written promise to appear in court.
The charge stems from an ongoing probe by North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation, the Elkin Police Department and the Surry County Sheriffs Office, after Cosby was arrested Nov. 19 and charged with multiple crimes in an Internet sex case. Those original charges include statutory sex offense with a 14-year-old boy and solicitation of a child by computer to commit a sex act.
Cosby, of State Road, was jailed after those initial charges until posting a $100,000 bond. He owns Next Step Wireless in Elkin, and was a member of the rescue squad until he resigned when the charges surfaced.
His court date to face all of the charges is Jan. 12 in District Court in Dobson.
