Two Men Arrested on Child Abuse Material Charges in SC

The South Carolina Attorney General’s Office effected the arrest of two men on child abuse material charges in SC. In a press release on Wednesday, December 29th, Attorney General Wilson, announced the arrests. The AG identified the two as  27-year-old Demetrius David John of Anderson, and 32-year-old Sean Robert Munson, of Charleston.

The police took both men into custody on Tuesday, December 21st, in their respective cities. John faces four counts of sexual exploitation of minors, a second-degree offense, and a felony punishable by up to ten years imprisonment on each count.

Munson faces five counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, second-degree, a felony offense punishable by up to ten years imprisonment on each count. The man is also charged with five counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, third-degree, a felony offense punishable by ten years imprisonment on each count.

The Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force investigators investigated both cases of child abuse material charges in SC. Their investigation revealed that Munson owned and distributed child sexual abuse material. On the other hand, John only distributed the materials, and the investigators received a CyberTipline report that led them to him.

The ICAC task force was assisted by the U.S. Secret Service, Anderson Police Department, Anderson County Sheriff’s Office, Charleston County Sheriff’s Office, and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI). The Attorney General’s Office will prosecute the two cases.

Child abuse is a serious criminal offense that does not only happen with strangers. Parents and guardians sometimes abuse the children under their care. When this happens, it plays a key role in child custody decisions.
