Woman charged for sex on Rock Hill swing accused of having pot at prison

— A Rock Hill woman accused last year of smoking pot and having sex with a man on a swing at Rock Hill City Hall’s amphitheater is behind bars again, charged with having pot and pills while at a York County prison camp this weekend.

Sheriff’s deputies charged Danielle Latrice Dewberry, 21, with furnishing contraband, according to an arrest warrant. By Sunday afternoon, she was still being held at the York County Detention Center on a $5,000 bond.

Detention center officers charged Dewberry while she was being searched at the York County prison camp at Moss Justice Center, according to her arrest warrant. While patting her down, jail officers found a gram of marijuana and “unlawful prescription pills” on her.

She “surrendered herself” to deputies once the items were found, the warrant states.

Last April, police arrested Dewberry and her boyfriend, 39-year-old Amin Jenkins, after finding them smoking pot and having sex on a city swing near the amphitheater in the middle of the afternoon.

After receiving a complaint from a passerby, police found Dewberry and Jenkins on the swing with their clothes pulled down, in the act of what a Rock Hill Police report called “fornicating.”

Police arrested both, charging them for indecent exposure, while also finding .01 grams of marijuana in a grinder on Dewberry, according to the report.

They were found in an area with four metal bench swings. The swings hang beneath a garden trellis of vines and leaves at the amphitheater. It was never disclosed which swing was used.

On Feb. 14 this year, Dewberry pleaded guilty to indecent exposure, according to York County court records. A day later, she began serving a 90-day sentence at the prison camp that was slated to end in September, according to an online search of the state’s probationers.

Jenkins pleaded guilty to indecent exposure in October, records show, and received a six-month jail sentence. He was released on parole a month later.

A records check with the State Law Enforcement Division shows that Dewberry pleaded no contest in 2011 to two counts of petty larceny and second-degree burglary. She received two years’ probation. Jenkins has multiple convictions dating back to 2005, including grand larceny, possession of drug paraphernalia and criminal domestic violence.
