Neiger, 65, was charged with seven counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor, according to a press release from S.C. Attorney General Alan Wilson
An investigation that began in Cary, N.C., by the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, led to Neiger’s arrest.
Police in North Carolina contacted South Carolina authorities after a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children identifying Neiger’s residence in Cayce as the source of an email account used to distribute “images depicting children engaged in sexual activity.”
Computers and other media devices were taken during a search of Neiger’s house in Cayce on Thursday.
