The South Carolina Attorney General's Office said an employee of an Upstate school district is facing numerous charges in connection with a child pornography investigation.

Daniel Brown, 38, was arrested on Wednesday on 10 counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor. According to the attorney general, Brown was found to be in possession of child porn images after investigators received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

A spokesperson for Greenville County Schools confirmed Brown was a former employee of Wade Hampton High School. He resigned his position as technology integration specialist on Wednesday, Sep. 20 and had been with the school since 2012.

The technology integration specialist works primarily with teachers, distributing Chromebook cars for classroom use.

The district said an investigation by the Greenville County Sheriff's Office has not found any connection between the allegations against Brown and any Wade Hampton students.

The district said that Brown was employed at Northwood Middle before he worked at Wade Hampton High School.

The district confirmed Brown was also contracted by EF Tours, a private tour company which recruits teachers to lead international field trips. The company had no contract nor affiliation with the company, the spokesperson said. The trips were not sponsored or endorsed by the schools.

If convicted, Brown could face up to 10 years in prison for each charge.

A bond hearing for Brown was held Wednesday and a judge set his bond at $10,000 per charge.
