SC man sought on 20 child porn charges back in Upstate

SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A South Carolina man who was wanted on 20 child porn charges is back in jail in Spartanburg County.

Online jail records show Peter Kendel, 23, was booked into the Spartanburg County Detention Center Tuesday morning on 20 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

Back in May, Spartanburg County deputies said 20 warrants were signed on April 12 for Kendel. He was supposed to turn himself in the same day but had not been seen since, deputies said.

Deputies said they seized several computers from Kendel's Campobello home and found file-sharing software with numerous files containing the pornography.

Then in September, law enforcement in New Jersey located and arrested Kendel on the outstanding warrants and awaited extradition back to South Carolina.

Kendel is being held in the Spartanburg County jail.
