Man charged with statutory rape in Scotland County, larceny by employee in Richmond

ROCKINGHAM — A man with prior convictions in five counties is being held in the Richmond County Jail on charges from both Richmond and Scotland counties.

Investigators with the Scotland County Sheriff’s Office allege that 38-year-old Jason Alexander Quick sexually assaulted a child from ages 10-12, however they’re not yet sure how many times.

Quick lives in the Old Hundred area of Scotland County, just east of Richmond County, according to SCSO.

Detectives have charged Quick with one felony count each of statutory rape of a child under the age of 15 and taking indecent liberties with a child.

Investigators say the case is still under investigation and more charges may be pending.

Jail records show the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office has also charged Quick with three felony counts of larceny by an employee, as well as one count of being a habitual felon.

Quick was arrested and booked at 11:27 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 6, records show.

He is being held on a $200,000 secured bond for the Scotland County charges and a $28,000 secured bond on the larceny charges, according to jail records. There is no bond amount listed for the habitual felon charge.

Online court records show Quick is scheduled to appear in Richmond County District Court on Dec. 15 on the larceny charges, and Scotland County District Court on Dec. 22 on the sexual assault charges.

His date for the habitual felon charge is Dec. 7 in Richmond County Superior Court.

Records show Quick is also scheduled to appear Feb. 15, 2023 in Richmond County District Court on traffic citations of reckless driving to endanger and failing to heed a light or siren from 2021.

Records with the N.C. Department of Public Safety show Quick was first convicted in 2006 on two counts of felony larceny in Moore County.

That same year, he was convicted of receiving stolen goods, breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, possession of burglary tools, carrying a concealed weapon and possession of a Schedule VI controlled substance in Mecklenburg County; and misdemeanor larceny in Cabarrus County.
In 2007, Quick was convicted on two counts of felony breaking and entering in Moore County.


His probation was revoked on several of those previous convictions in late 2007 when he was convicted of receiving or possessing a firearm and possessing stolen goods in Richmond County and served 22 months behind bars.

Within three months of his release in 2009, Quick was convicted again in Richmond County of felony breaking and entering and larceny after breaking and entering.

He was given probation, which was revoked three months later when he was convicted of assault inflicting serious injury and incarcerated for seven months.

Quick went back to prison for a year in January of 2013 when he was convicted of possessing stolen goods.

His most recent conviction was in 2018 for a misdemeanor charge of aiding and abetting larceny in Montgomery County.

All defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
