Jason Smith of Campobello is a filthy pervert. (Allegedly, of course.)  Here’s the news release from the Office of the Attorney General:

Attorney General Henry McMaster announced today that Jason Nem Smith, 30, of 208 Harrison Acres Drive, in Campobello, South Carolina, was arrested on August 5, 2010, by the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office on child pornography charges.

The Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office is a member of the Attorney General’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Task Force investigators have received training on the use of special software to conduct undercover investigations related to the sharing of child pornography on peer-to-peer (file sharing) networks.

Smith is charged with one (1) count of Sexual Exploitation of a Minor (§16-15-405), 2nd Degree, a felony offense punishable by two (2) to ten (10) years imprisonment; one (1) count of Sexual Exploitation of a Minor (§16-15-410), 3rd Degree, a felony offense punishable to ten (10) years imprisonment; and three (3) counts of Dissemination of Obscene Material to a Minor (§16-15-345), a felony offense punishable to ten (10) years imprisonment on each count.

Smith is charged with sharing digital photographs and/or videos over the Internet depicting children engaged in sex acts. Smith’s computer was seized for forensic examination. Files containing the pornographic images were found on that computer.
A booking photo is available through the Spartanburg County Detention Center.

The case will be prosecuted by the Attorney General’s Office.

McMaster stressed that all defendants are presumed innocent unless and until they are proven guilty in a court of law.

Smith posted bond and is back out on the street today. Let’s hope investigators have an airtight case.
