GOOSE CREEK, SC (WCSC) -

A Goose Creek man was arrested last week after over 400 videos containing child porn and documents that included instructions on the sexual abuse of children were found on his computers, authorities say.

South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson said Berkeley County Sheriff's Office deputies arrested 25-year-old Deangelo Cornell Young on Jan. 25, two days after executing a search warrant at his home and finding the pornography and instructions on two of his laptop computers and three other hard drives.

Wilson said investigators were tipped off to downloading of the material on Dec. 11 and Dec. 13 of last year.

Young is charged with five counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and eleven counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

If convicted, Young could face a maximum of ten years imprisonment on each count.

A judge granted Young a $160,000 bond. He is ordered to not have contact with children under age 17; stay away from the Internet and electronic devices such as cell phones, computers and electronic gaming devices; and remain at least one-half mile away from areas where children congregate, such as schools, libraries, playgrounds and parks, Wilson said.

The investigation is ongoing. The case will be prosecuted by the Attorney General's Office.
