The arrest was announced in a press release.
Investigators say Wolfe was seen taking inappropriate photos of minors at a business in Lexington County on February 21, 2016. He was confronted by a witness and fled. He was later arrested by law enforcement officers.
Wolfe was charged with one (1) count of Sexual Exploitation of a Minor, second degree (§16-15-405), a felony offense punishable by up to ten (10) years imprisonment, and one (1) count of Criminal Sexual Conduct with a Minor, third degree (§16-3-655(c)), a felony offense punishable by up to 15 years imprisonment.
Bond was set at $500,000, with mandatory GPS monitoring. He must also stay away from places frequented by children. A mobile phone was seized for forensic examination.
The case will be prosecuted by the Attorney General’s Office.
Attorney General Wilson stressed all defendants are presumed innocent unless and until they are proven guilty in a court of law.
