Goose Creek man charged with sharing child porn online

Posted: Updated:
GOOSE CREEK, SC (WCSC) -

A 33-year-old Goose Creek man was arrested this week and charged with sharing child pornography online.

According to South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson, Jason William McCoy was arrested by Berkeley County deputies Wednesday and charged with five counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

According to Wilson, sheriff's office detectives downloaded five files containing child porn from a shared folder on McCoy's computer. Authorities later executed a search warrant at McCoy's residence and seized several items, including two laptop computers, which were submitted for a complete forensic examination.

The investigation is ongoing, and additional charges may be filed. The case will be prosecuted by the Attorney General's Office.
