Eric Kevin Moore II, 23, faces 10 counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor, the S.C. Attorney General’s Office announced in a news release. The felony charge carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison.

Berkeley County sheriff’s deputies and the state’s Internet Crimes Against Children task force made the arrest, the release said. Hanahan police assisted in the investigation.
