(COLUMBIA, S.C.) – Aug. 21, 2020 – South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson announced the arrest of Kevin J. McGuire, Jr., 39, of Spring Grove, PA, on one charge connected to the sexual exploitation of a minor. Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force investigators with the Charleston Police Department made the arrest.

 

Investigators state McGuire possessed child sexual abuse material*.  

 

McGuire was arrested on August 17, 2020. He is charged with one count of sexual exploitation of a minor, third degree (§16-15-410), a felony offense punishable by up to 10 years imprisonment.

 

This 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.

 

 

* Child sexual abuse material, or CSAM, is a more accurate reflection of the material involved in these heinous and abusive crimes. “Pornography” can imply the child was a consenting participant.  Globally, the term child pornography is being replaced by CSAM for this reason.
