COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

A Columbia man has been arrested, accused of using child pornography.

Attorney General Alan Wilson's office, who organizes the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, announced Wednesday 27-year-old Michael Scott Simmons was arrested. He is charged with six counts involving the sexual exploitation of minors.

Investigators with the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office contacted other members of the task force when they discovered pornographic images involving kids may have been distributed through an account traced to Simmons' home.

Officers with the Columbia Police Department served warrants at Simmons' home Tuesday. He was taken to Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center and is held on $15,000 bond.

If convicted, Simmons faces up to 10 years on each count.
