BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

A Berkeley County man was sentenced to 16 years in prison this week after being convicted of disseminating 67 images of child porn to undercover investigators.

According to a release from the South Carolina Attorney General's Office, 26-year-old Raymond Cain used the screen name "pedoyou" to distribute "some of the most horrific photos [investigators] had seen."

Most of the images comprised the rape of infants and toddlers, said investigators with the Boynton Beach Police Department in Florida and the Saskatchewan Internet Child Exploitation Unit in Canada.

Investigators said Cain eventually told SLED agents he was "turned on" by sexual pictures of infants with adults. Web postings were found where Cain requested images of babies being raped, "the bloodier the better," according to the release.

He was convicted on twenty counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, second degree.

Cain will be placed on probation for five years following his release, and will never again be able to possess a computer. He was also required to register as a sex offender.

Attorney General Alan Wilson called the sentence a significant victory in the fight to protect children from online predators.

"It's important to remember that the people depicted in these disturbing images aren't actors; they're real children who are forever scarred by the crimes committed against them.  Every time these images are looked at or are forwarded to another person, that child is victimized again. I commend all the law enforcement officers who were involved in finding this abuser of innocent children and putting him behind bars.  Together, we will keep working to protect children from those who seek to selfishly use them for their twisted pleasure," added Wilson.
