BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

A man is facing several years in prison for having and sharing child pornography. 

Brian Franz has pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and five counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

Franz was arrested in March 2014 after Berkeley County investigators found several sexual videos of minors coming from his IP address.

A forensic examination revealed 90 videos containing child pornography. 

Franz's sentence was reduced from 10 years in prison to three years with five years of probation.  He received credit for 20 days of time served.

Officials say he must register as a sex offender.
