GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Deputies arrested a 30-year-old man in Greenville County on child pornography charges last Thursday following an investigation by the Georgetown County sheriff's "computer crime's office".

Billy Jo Lynch, of the Greer community, is charged with criminal solicitation of a minor and two counts of dissemination of obscene material to a minor.

Sheriff Lane Cribb has designated the new office and assigned an investigator to the nationally-certified program designed to protect children from online sexual predators.

He said, "This is the first of what we hope to be many. We are not going to sit back and do nothing while persons prey on the children of Georgetown County."

Lynch is being held in the Georgetown County Detention Center.  The Greenville County Sheriff's Office assisted with his arrest.
