South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson said a Greenville man was arrested on child pornography charges. 

Attorney General Wilson said 25-year-old Ezequiel Rivera Santiago was arrested on Jan. 26. 

According to Wilson, the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force investigators with the Greenville County Sheriff's Office made the arrest. 

Investigators received a report from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that led them to Santiago, Wilson said. 

The Attorney General's Office said Santiago engaged in sexually explicit communication with a minor and encouraged the victim to create and send sexually explicit images. 

Wilson said Santiago is charged with 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 under eighteen. 

Santiago faces up to 40 years in prison if convicted on all charges.
