Rock Hill man arrested on child porn charges

A Rock Hill man has been arrested on charges of distribution of child pornography.

Derek Van Buren Robinson, 28, was arrested Thursday and charged with five counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor, according to a release from the S.C. Office of Attorney General Alan Wilson.

The charges stem from the York County Sheriff’s Office undercover investigation of the distribution of child pornography. Officials were able to download pictures of children engaged in sexual activity through a peer-to-peer network.

Investigators obtained a search warrant for Robinson’s home. Authorities seized a computer and submitted it for forensic examination.

The York County Sheriff’s Office, a member of the Attorney General’s S.C. Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, made the arrest.

If convicted, Robinson could face two to 10 years imprisonment for each count.
