Attorney General to discuss Internet task force

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina's top prosecutor is discussing accomplishments made by his statewide Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

Attorney General Henry McMaster is holding a news conference on Friday to announce a milestone in the effort.

McMaster is also giving an overview of the program under which 199 people have been arrested since 2004.

The task force has been a centerpiece of McMaster's two terms as South Carolina attorney general. He unsuccessfully ran for governor this year and leaves office in January.
