Cheraw, SC (WLTX) - A Cheraw man has been charged in connection with a child pornography case.

George Walter Krauss, 75, is facing 11 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor second-degree.

The National Centers for Missing and Exploited Children got a tip that images of kids engaged in sexual activity had been disseminated from an email account traced to Krauss's home. Investigators got a search warrant, and on July 17th, local law enforcement seized computers from his home.

Bond for him was set at $71,500

State Attorney General Alan Wilson says Krauss had been arrested in February on three counts of criminal exploitation of a minor third-degree. That case is still pending.
