TAYLORS, SC (FOX Carolina) -

South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson said Friday that a Taylors man had been arrested on multiple charges after investigators said he encouraged a minor to take and send sexually explicit images online.

Wilson said Greenville County deputies arrested Michael Scott Thomas, 42, on December 22.

“Investigators state Thomas encouraged a minor victim to produce and send sexually explicit images via social media, and engaged in criminal sexual conduct with a minor,” Wilson stated in a news release.

Thomas was charged with one count of criminal sexual conduct with a minor, one count of sexual exploitation of a minor first degree, one count of criminal solicitation of a minor, and one count of disseminating obscene material to a person twelve years of age or younger. 

If convicted on all charges, Thomas faces up to 45 years in prison.
