The Ware Shoals Police Department said activity within an online community called "Whisper" led to the arrests of four Upstate men.
The Whisper app advertises itself as the "largest online platform where people share real thoughts and feelings, forge relationships and engage in conversations on an endless variety of topics - without identities or profiles."
Officers arrested 25-year-old Robert James Teseniar, 29-year-old Nicholas Scott Schultz, 28-year-old Daniel Claudie Jackson, and 19-year-old Thomas Her after investigators said they had inappropriate contact with a 14-year-old girl through Whisper.
According to the incident reports, Teseniar and Jackson both asked the victim to send them photos of her body. Schultz and Her are both accused of also sending the victim pictures of their genitals.
All the suspects are charged with disseminating obscene material to a minor. Jackson and Teseniar are also charged with sexual exploitation of a minor. Schultz is also charged with criminal sexual conduct with a minor.
