SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) - A Summerville man who works for the United States Navy was arrested Wednesday on charges connected to child pornography.

South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson said 36-year-old Justin Eugene Berry is charged with five counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.  Wilson said the arrest follows an investigation by his office's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

According to Wilson, Berry sent files containing child pornography to an undercover deputy with the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office on Dec. 31 last year.

Berry is a Chief Petty Officer with the US Navy.  NCIS has been notified of his arrest, according to Wilson.

If convicted, Berry could face up to 50 years in prison.
