GOOSE CREEK, SC (WCSC) - A Goose Creek man has been arrested on a number of child sex crimes.

SC Attorney General Alan Wilson announced that Alexzander Len Rossi was charged with eight counts in connection with criminal sexual conduct with a minor.

The Charleston County Sheriff's Office, a member of the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, made the arrest.

"Investigators say that Rossi communicated via social media with a person he believed to be a minor," authorities said."He sent naked photos of himself and arranged to meet for a sexual encounter."

Rossi was arrested last Thursday and charged with one count of Criminal Solicitation of a Minor, one count of Attempted Criminal Sexual Conduct with a Minor and Sex Offender Registry status, and six counts of Attempted Dissemination of Obscene Material to a Person Under Age 18.

Bond was set at $70,000.

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