CLOVER, S.C. -- A Clover man was arrested Friday after admitting to uploading a video that linked him to child pornography, officials say.

Gregory Joseph Lingen, 33, is charged with 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

The York County Sheriff's Office received information from the North Carolina Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force that led authorities to Lingen's residence.

The South Carolina Attorney General's Office says Lingen admitted to uploading the video in question.

Officials seized two computers and other other electronic equipment from his home that carried numerous child pornography files, according to authorities.

The Attorney General's Office will prosecute the case. Lingen faces up to 10 years imprisonment on each count.

His bond was set at $50,000.
