Bluffton swim coach accused of lewd acts


Jeremy William Kemeny, 40, faces charges of two counts of lewd acts after the 18-year-old victim, who paid rent at Kemeny’s home, reported finding a video that showed her in the bathroom, Maj. Joseph Manning said.

Officers searched his home on Rocking Horse Lane late Thursday and seized the desktop computer where the victim found the video, as well as two laptop computers, Manning said.

“Our main priority was getting the evidence so it wasn’t destroyed,” he said.

Kemeny has been arrested in Beaufort County before, though police are still working to determine what became of a 2009 charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

According to a 2009 news release that remained on the police department’s website Thursday, Kemeny was accused of impersonating a 16-year-old boy on MySpace, a social networking website, to correspond with two 13-year-old girls and convince them to send him sexually suggestive photos. On Friday, 14th Circuit Solicitor Duffie Stone said he had no information on that arrest.
