LADSON, S.C. (WCBD) – Dorchester County deputies on Thursday announce the arrest of a man who was “actively trading” child pornography on the internet.
According to DCSO, deputies have arrested Nicholas Komninos (28) on five counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, 2nd degree.
Komninos’ arrest comes after South Carolina Attorney General’s Special Investigators received a tip that a resident was actively trading child pornography over the internet. The tip led to a search warrant of Komninos’ home executed by the Lowcountry FBI Violent Crimes Task Force for an investigation.
Komninos received a $75,000 surety bond after appearing before the Dorchester County Magistrate.
